Nest Little Tribune Bay/Seawright
« on: July 22, 2010, 09:43:44 PM »
A place to post fotos & information to do with Nest Little Tribune Bay/Seawright.

Doug*s map of all the Hornby nests is here.



Nest Little Tribune Bay/Seawright is not on Doug*s map.
It is upwards from nest #25, along the shore of Little Tribune Bay.

wooohoooo!

i don*t know how old this nest is, or how long it*s been in use.
i only heard of this nest, for the first time, today.
A neighbour & avid watcher of Nest #25 informed me that this nest existed, & that it produced an eaglet this year!
& that both of these nests*s eaglets are sharing the beach!
i*ll try to catch these two with my camera before they head off for the salmon runs.
It is a long beach, & would mean a lot of searching.
Mind you, the screeping apparently gives them away!!   :mhihi
wooohoooo!

Today between my first job & my second one, i took Dooki down the beach access path where this Nest is supposed to be found.
i am not sure i ever found the Nest, but i took some fotos of what i believe is the nest.
i definitely saw an eaglet!
& HEARD one!  :mhihi
i also saw an adult.
The adult at one point flew way out into Tribune Bay, which is full of moored boats right now, & i saw them drop their landing gear & grab something from the water.
Then they flew back in with it & landed in a tree.
The eaglet was screeping away.
Then the adult took off & landed again.
Were they trying to entice the eaglet to come after them?
The eaglet was screeping away, but stayed put in their tree.
Fotos & video coming soon.
wooohoooo!

More detective work, booni.  The screeping eaglets are helping you locate nests at this time of year.
Earth speaks through wilderness.
We still have a moment to listen.

Sounds like a learning exercise for the eaglet's benefit.  Wow!  You're going to be able to write your own book, booni with all of your observations and findings.  Watch out Doug!!  Thanks for the update.

On Facebook,  the following post was made by Larry Pierce:

"The eagles are back ! Heard one yesterday, in the trees near my farm across from Little Tribune Bay."

Here ya go wren.
This is what i thought, with my bare eye, was the Little Tribune Bay Nest back in 2010.
There was an adult, or two, having much success flying way out into the Bay & bringing back Fish.
The youngster remained in their perch Tree beside the Nest.

Here is a video showing the Eaglet & their proximity to what i thought might be the Nest Tree.

Hmmmm... :puzzled2

This looks like the nest the eagles were using when i first spotted them, Booni.

Except even more skimpy, because they had had less years to build it!

Compare with the third photo in this posting from 2014... Taken from the beach, as yours was, I think?

Walk a little bit to the left, so that the tall dead branch appears to be in front of the nest....

Seems to match.

This year's new nest, if you stand in the same area, would be to your left, just a few trees over, and on the lip of the little bluff.
