i*m hoping i put them safe where i wouldn*t forget them.
i thot they were in the box with my feathers.
i found a bunch of feathers under that nest & i had them in a bucket.
i*m afraid when i tossed the feathers, i also tossed the pellet!
AJL, the pellet was approximately 2" long & 4" around.

& as for Dooki, i had a nestover that i found on the road in front of the Hornby nest.
i had photographed it & then brought it in the house.
i think i left it within reach of Dooki & he must*ve eaten it because it*s gone!
It was a small dried fish with very sharp teeth!

Are people interested in fotos of feathers i*ve found?
wooohoooo!

Infact I would be interested in seeing anything you would find interesting enough to photograph  :heart

Today Dooki & i biked by nest Brigantine.
Two adults were perched side by side in the very top of the nest tree.
The one to the right was smaller & darker.
The one to the left was lighter & larger.
Kinda like Mum & Dad.
If these are the Mum & Dad of nest Brigantine, it would appear that they do not have eggs at this time.
wooohoooo!

Today Dooki & i biked by Nest Brigantine & i brought my binoculars to take a closer look!  :binocs
There was an adult perched on the nest!
From watching the webcam, i take this to mean that there is at least one hatchling there, as the parent wasn*t in brooding or incubating position!
i aim to bring my camera next time i go there to get some fotos!
wooohoooo!

After checking out Nest #9, i rode by both sides of the webcam nest, but could see nothing, so we headed out to Brigantine Nest.
i couldn*t see anything from the road, so i went in to where i can see quite well into the nest.
Nothing.
i was thinking, guess there is nothing going on here.
i see no little ones in the nest, i don*t even see anyone in any of the perch trees!
Then i looked up, & there was an adult in a perch tree!!!  :eceek

june12 2010 11:55 - adult in perch tree(12)



i photographed them for a bit.
They had a bit of a sleepy look to their eye.
i thought, hmmm, nothing going on here, don*t see anyone in the nest, this eagle doesn*t seem to even be fishing.
i DID notice that they seemed to glance back at the nest once in a while.
So, so did i.

june12 2010 12:01 - adult in perch tree - looks towards nest(44)



i thought i could see a white spot on the beach.
Was there an adult fishing out there?
i focused my camera on the spot.
An adult on the beach at low tide, fishing!

june 12 2010 12:10 - Brigantine Nest adult fishing on beach at low tide



By the way, the water that the eagle is fishing by is visible through the close up camera.
It is just beyond Sandstone Point, in the bay there to the right at the very top of the screen.
There is a nest between the webcam one & Brigantine, the Nomad*s Nest, but i haven*t see any definite action there yet.

Here is a screen capture through the close up camera, showing Sandstone Point & the bay beyond it that this nest is on.
Thankyou to raptorman for the screencapture & labelling.



i kept checking the nest for action.
i could see a little head poking up!
But i heard a sound behind me & looked up to see the adult leaving the perch tree & heading for the water.
This perch tree is the equivalent of the Peters*s Tree for the webcam eagle family.
They fish from there, have a good view of the beach, & can keep an eye on & protect the nest from there.
The adult was flying out to the water, as though they had spotted a fish!

june 12 2010 12:44 - Brigantine Nest adult goes fishing(127)



Adult has grabbed fish, & some of that nasty invasive seaweed species.



i pointed my camera back towards the nest & waited.
There appeared the adult, trailing the fish & the seaweed!
You can see a little peepster peeping out of the nest, right against the trunk of the tree, watching the adult coming in!

Here you can see the little fella against the poopshots on the trunk of the tree!
He has his beak open, & you can just imagine the sound coming out of it from watching the webcam!
Be sure to click on the foto, then click it again to see the little one.

The adult seemed to just drop the fish & then leave again.
i pointed my camera at the perch tree & waited, & they did not disappoint me!
(in the last foto in the post above, i see a band on the left leg of the adult?
i thought it was just the light, but look at the left leg in this foto too!)
