Nest 24 - Tribune Bay Campsite - 2019 Season
« on: March 02, 2019, 07:57:13 AM »

This is a beautiful old Fir Tree Nest, on a road that is super busy in the summer months.
It is right across the road from a bustling summer time campsite, near the Hornby Co-Op, & on one of the main routes to get to the fabulous sandy Tribune Bay beach.
i believe the Eagle pair of this Nest use both sides of Spray Point, which divides Tribune Bay from Little Tribune Bay.
So they have a nice large area, & a bit of privacy even, to find food.

You can find last year*s posts about this Nest territory & links to previous seasons* posts here.
wooohoooo!

From the Co-op parking lot i have been noticing extra Eagles, when i look towards this Nest Tree.
In the midst of that, these two are cozy together in the top of the Nest Tree, keeping an eye on their territory & staking their claim to this Nest.
The male has a full crop!
The female is stained from eating Seal or Sea Lion fat.
Big Trib is to our left, Little Trib to our right.

i was driving home along St. John*s Point Road when i heard strange calls & when i looked up there was also a strange sight!
It is hard to describe, it was a quick view, but it looked like a large Bird with smaller Birds attached to them!
& these strange calls!
i pulled over after i turned the corner at Big Tree.
i was still hearing the calls & getting the odd glimpse of something, but i wasn*t sure what.
Then i saw a Bird fly low & fast over the road.
A Peregrine Falcon!
Was there one or a pair of them putting the chase on an Eagle perhaps?
It got quiet so i carried on.
There is no parking at the Co-op now, it is so busy there, so i park on the road beside the Co-op, & i have to go way down the road.
i notice the Eagles pair of this Nest are both making a fuss vocally, & both are perched on the Nest Tree calling.
Perhaps they were the ones pestered for some reason by the Peregrines?
Not sure we have reports of Peregrines in this area before?
i have seen them next to the road going to Little Tribune Bay, however.

& while i am in this topic, i have been eyeing this Nest for weeks, & i am not seeing any Eaglets here.
wooohoooo!

Two days ago i was in the Co-op parking lot when i spotted a large Bird flying overhead.
The Bird was Eagle size, but white!
A guy said, *seeing anything interesting?*
i said, *yes! a large Bird, Eagle size, but white*
He said *Osprey!*
i said *we don*t have those around here!*
He just pointed at the sky.
wooohoooo!

Interesting news... It's been a few years since I'd heard any reports of Ospreys!

Remember the ones who used to nest between Big Tribune and the Tralee Point and Lunar Rocks territories?
