11/17/2010-I am trying to watch the cam today, but the wind is so horrible that it is making me sea sick. I also am worried about the cam and nest trees as the swaying is so severe. This might be a tough story to follow once chicks hatch.

I hope that the choices for camera locations and mounting methods can hold up for the duration of the season. It looks pretty bad today.

Being the first year for these cams, the setup has not yet been put to the test. Only time will tell. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.....

Yes, Dizzymom. It can be harrowing in high winds and rain.

Well, it seems the storm has passed for now. High winds and hail have not affected the nest or cams today. The Mr. and Mrs. returned to the nest when it was all over, and apparently, all is well. Just wet.

With milder weather for the afternoon, activities continue.



Seems Ma Hornby isn't the only Mrs. that has bad hair days.



And the Mrs. leaves the nest.

Dizzymom, more super photos. I especially like the one of Mum flying off and the last one of both in the nest.  I wonder if all the female  bald eagles have 'bad hair days'  :question

I sure had one on Wed.  :eclol There were wicked high winds and buckets of rain during the early morning hours on Wed. I had to get up about 7 a.m. and close the bedroom window.  Then by around 10 a.m. the sun was out and we had a sunny, cool and windy day. City road roads were backed up = big puddles etc.

Dizzymom, it's interesting and fun to see another pair of bald eagles working around the nest, relating to one another and, hopefully, having and raising some little ones!   :eclove   Thank you for keeping track of what they're doing and posting about them here.  :thumbup:

11/18/2010-overcast morning on the nest, but activity nonetheless.

I didn't notice this the other day, but this eagle has a lot of fluffy white feathers showing on the back. I think this is the Mrs., but I'm not 100% sure.



There is a base of a small branch off the tree trunk that sticks out into the nest. I have watched both eagles at different times try to "bite" it off, but no luck.



And here is another capture of one of them leaving the nest.

11/20/2010-The sunrise greeted the White Rock nest this morning and revealed snow blanketing the entire area, nest included. I will keep watch for the eagles to see their reaction.

The dusting of snow is beautiful and it shouldn't bother the eagles.  They're dressed for it!   :eclove

Video:  Towards the End of the Day

At the beginning of the video, you hear the eagles softly calling to each other.  The first to arrive brings a branch to the nest.
