Booni, that baby peeking out over the edge of the nest is darling!  What a sweet face.   :ecsmile

Thank you for sharing so much of Hornby Island with all of us.   :eclove

i spent over two hours with my camera set up pointed at Nest Dunlop Point yesterday.
i saw nary a feather the whole time.
i could hear Mum & Dad on the beach nearby, & one flew by the nest at one point, but of the eaglet i saw no wingflap or poopshot, nor did i hear i screep.
i*m a bit worried about this eaglet now.  :ecsad
i actually haven*t seen this eaglet since the last time i was there taking fotos.
i was sure if i went in the early morning i would spot them, but no luck.
i will keep trying.
wooohoooo!
