Nest 36 Strachan Valley - 2018-2019 Season
« on: October 18, 2018, 09:21:57 AM »

This Nest is quite a ways inland, probably the farthest inland of any of the Nests we have found.
It is near an old time organic farm, & we get reports from the people who live there.

Last year*s topic, & links to previous years can be found HERE
wooohoooo!

We went for a walk near the Marsh in Strachan Valley.
This Eagle was perched on an old dead Tree near the field.
i figure they are likely one of the Nest 36 pair.

These cool orange Mushrooms were growing out of a downed Tree in the Woods nearby.

We were invited to the house of someone who lives on the marsh because she was seeing Eagles bathing!
We waited a loooooong time til Eagles showed up, but the light was coming right at us, & they didn*t stay long.
They could probably see us sitting there.

We went for a walk at the marsh!
It was cloudy & a bit spittery with rain.
A perfect day for it.
The grass along the trail was taller than we were, & the colours so lovely.
We found Geese on the pond!
Many ages of them.
Two ages in this first foto.

Beautifully coloured fledgling, blended in perfectly with the background.
