Title: Nest #20 Whaling Station Bay - 2014-2015 season
Post by: winterwren on January 11, 2015, 08:11:51 PM

This is the thread for posting fotos, videos & discussion of Nest #20 Whaling Station.

This Nest is on Whaling Station Bay on properties that are very busy with people all summer.
The one neighbour of this Nest always talks to me about what he sees going on with his neighbour Eagles.
They are on a beautiful bay, with a lovely sandy family swimming beach.
The Nest is on the western edge of the Bay on a rocky sandstone point.
Around the corner & to the west from the sandy swimming beach is another rocky bay where the eagles do some of their fishing & hunting.
They catch Birds, even a White Goose was reported last year.
In 2012, the Eagles of this Nest took a break from nesting after a good part of their Nest got blown down in a wind storm.
They continued to build the Nest, but did not produce eggs.
In 2013, this Eagle pair raised two Eaglets, but one of them ended up grounded in the populated neighbourhood to the west of the Nest.

Last year, 2014, there was one eaglet in this nest. When Scootch left later than usual, we were watching to see which other eagle families were staying that late in the season, and this nest's family was one of them.
Last year's posts, and links to previous years, are here. (http://www.ournaturezone.com/index.php?topic=1444.msg144342#msg144342)

A little paddle through this area on December 26. When I left Whaling station, two eagles were perched near the nest.
I returned an hour later and they were still there. I paddled to calm water in the little bay, and the sun peeked out of the clouds for a few minutes.

I was working inland near this nest today and I kept seeing eagles cruising by between this territory and Belcarra. There was one sub-adult with a dark terminal tail band that kept showing up and doing solo acrobatics. Also I repeatedly heard the rusty-hinge call of a youngster, seemingly coming from near this nest.

I quit work at 4 pm and headed to the beach and of course all was now quiet.

I disturbed a small flock of Buffleheads, with one Common Goldeneye among them. I always see them at the same spot, and I scouted out rocks that might serve as a blind. Indeed they came back while I walked further, so they do return to that spot when there are no disturbances!

As I rounded the point I spotted two eagles perched together above the nest.
Here's one of them, with something weird stuck to his or her beak. The other eagle is just below and to the left, obscured by some branches in this shot.

Here they are both... I'm thinking Dad on the right, Mom peering at me above the branches on the left.

We were walking down the road through this Nest territory on wednesday when i heard a terrific CRACK!!
i looked to the source of the sound & saw an adult Eagle with a HUGE stick in their feet!
The branch had three branches to it, all green & alive, & was a good three to four feet long!
The Eagle dropped the branch, perhaps because it was too heavy, or perhaps they were startled by me turning to look at them.
The branch was on the ground when we passed by a bit later.

I was on the beach at Whaling Station Bay at about 12:45 yesterday (March 24) when I saw eagles heading off the shore. A small herring ball materialized, fairly close to shore. About 25 eagles were soon fishing from it. This lasted about 45 minutes.

We're still seeing some of the smaller seiners out there. I don't know what it means. Everyone I ask is confused.

Yesterday I had a lovely invitation for tea near this nest. While the water boiled, I was shown a spot in the garden from which I could see the nest!

As soon as we parked, I could hear loud screeps.
At first I couldn't see anything, then a dark head appeared!
I just had time for a few photos.
The eaglet then stood tall and facing me, but behind some leaves - almost completely out of view.
I expected the next screeps to be loud and clear, since the eaglet was above the rim and facing me.
But no... The next calls were muffled... As if the caller was facing the other way.

So... Another eaglet?
This nest usually has twins.
The nest tree is right against the garage next door. My hosts told me that the owners aren't parking their car in the driveway these days because there is so much 'white rain' coming from the nest! They told me that Booni had checked the area and reported many, many poop shots.
I had a quick look. The whole area was dotted with white!
Enough poop for two eaglets, I would think!  :eclol

i got messages from wren last evening.
She had gotten a call from the people who live under Nest #20.
They had found an Eaglet on the ground when they arrived at their place, june 27.
The next day they called MARS.
We waited for a call to go get him, but no one called.
i was going by the Nest neighbourhood this morning, so i stopped to talk to the people, & to take some assessment fotos of the Eaglet.
He was nowhere in sight!
But the people had all just seen him nearby.
On my way out, i checked one more place, the garage, & there was this gigantic brown thing standing in there.
The Eaglet!
He seemed calm & curious, checking out his surroundings, not fearful or running away.
So i took a few fotos & videos.

wren & i both had work today, but this Eaglet needed to get to MARS!
i called as soon as i got to work.
Reg answered.
He agreed, & gave the thumbs up that we capture this fella.
i got everything organized from work.
i called the neighbours & asked them to herd the Eaglet into the garage & close the door til we could get there.
That way he would be safe & wouldn*t go to the road or down the bank to the beach or get chased by a dog.
i had the kennel & towels with me.
wren came by after work & picked up the gear & went & captured him in the garage.
The nice neighbours offered to take him to Buckley Bay, where Dawn met them & brought the Eaglet to MARS.
Maybe wren & or Dawn would tell us what MARS said please?
i believe Dawn has pictures of the Eaglet at MARS?
& the people who found him have fotos they are sending to me, which i will ask permission to post here.

Once we got to MARS we were met by one of the interns & Reg.  The eaglet weighed in at approx. 2.7kg, after that it was examination time, feet, legs, wings, shoulders & crop, from what I gleaned all was well physically, the eaglet was very alert, bright eyed and appeared very curious of the surroundings.  The crop was totally flat & empty, so this poor little one had not had anything to eat for a while.  As I was leaving he/she was being dusted for parasites & there was a tube of what looked like orange juice ready for hydration (I decided not to stay for that process).

Big thanks to booni, wren & the guy who transported over to Buckley Bay, also to MARS for their excellent care.  Let's hope this little one will be OK and eventually have a wonderful free flying future.

Here are a few photo's of the process, a little on the dark side as obviously I wouldn't use the flash.

Ha ha, thanks Rajame!

& thanks Dawn for the MARS update to this rescue!

Thanks also, to the dedicated neighbours of Nest #20, who took the time to go to Buckley Bay & back, late in the afternoon of a hot day, & who refused financial compensation for their ferry fares!
They were expecting to go way earlier in the day than how it worked out, & were having a dinner party that night.
Fortunately they got back for it just in time.

Now, thank you to the neighbours on the other side of the Nest, the ones with all the poopshots on their Salal & car!
They arrived to find this little Eaglet standing on their deck.
This is what wren heard from them - The eaglet was trying to walk into the kitchen. She said her first thought when she arrived home yesterday was, ‘who has left a stuffed bird on my doorstep?’ Then it moved.
One of them showed me the fotos he*d been able to get of this Eaglet, & offered to send them to me, when i wasn*t able to find the Eaglet yesterday morning.
He has given me permission to share his fantastic fotos of the Eaglet, in the woods under the Nest Tree.
The little Eaglet had a route being followed, & had been quite easy to approach & keep an eye on.
The little one was calling to their parents, & the parents were calling back.

Oh, yes, a couple more things about this Eaglet.
In the garage, with the door closed, the Eaglet had been found twice perched on something quite high, one time two & a half feet off the ground!
So the Eaglet was getting some lift with their fleaping.
The other thing, i believe when they opened the garage door for wren to complete the capture, the Eaglet was found mantling a running shoe!  :mhihi
This Eaglet sure endeared them self to everyone involved!

&, just a reminder, this is the SECOND time an Eaglet has needed rescue from this Nest!
The first time was a whole month later, & two years ago.
Read about that here. (http://www.ournaturezone.com/index.php?topic=1235.msg136067#msg136067)

The Eaglet seems to be focused on something here, look at the craned neck & erect head feathering!
i love the white head feather tips they have at this age, & notice all the lovely tassels on the newly-grown primary & secondary feathers!  :heart

That is one beautiful and certain interesting eaglet!!!!  Thanks to all involved.... Booni, Wren, Dawn, MARS, and above all the neighbours that really
cared about this guy/gal!!!  Thanks Dawn for the update too.  Now to get him/her back to being healthy so he can come home to Hornby!!! I am sure most people on Hornby have Booni and Wren on speed dial... I sure would  :nod2

Way to go all!!!!!

Here are photos I took on June 21, a full week before the eaglet took her unscheduled glide to the ground.

I took these photos from a neighbour's garden. I was told to 'just stand there by Henry Hudson for the best view.' Henry Hudson being a rose bush, of course.

I only managed to see one eaglet, but I could clearly hear two.
This eaglet has food clinging to his or her beak. We just missed a food delivery as we arrived.

While trying to get a better view of the eaglets, I kept being distracted by all the birds in that beautiful garden. Hummingbirds were doing the courtship dance, working on a second clutch of the summer perhaps? Here's a handsome Rufous male who paused just long enough.

A Spotted Towhee drank from a water dish, with a fledgling calling nonstop from the brush nearby.

Lol I'm always like that, Cali... "Oooh look! birds!"

Now here are the photos I took from another spot nearby, after the downed eaglet left for MARS. (The initial finder would like this eaglet to be known as Elizabeth, Lizzie for short, "because she looked so regal.") (If she turns out to be a male, we'll be in trouble.)

So, a while after maybe-Lizzie started on her next adventure off-island, after all the conversations and phone calls were done, I heard some screeps from the nest and was able to catch a glimpse of the second eaglet!

On the first picture we can see part of the sheaths of the flight feathers.

There is a lot of down clinging to the nest branches.
Shiny-eyed little one here...

Big Thank you to Booni, Wrennie, Dawn, Reg, and the neighbours who found, and then helped transport Eaglet.  Watched the video of Eaglet in Garage, sure was checking out the new Digs, probably wondered where in the world it was.  Glad it seems healthy and hope back to Hornby soon.

I got some news from Maj. After being rehydrated at MARS, the eaglet maybe-Elizabeth was transferred to Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation (OWL) in Delta.

There, she will have access to a larger flight enclosure. She will also have a foster parent, an eagle named Curly. This is wonderful because Lizzie was getting too cosy with her neighbouring humans, despite their best efforts to keep her wild, during her sojourn on the ground. Now she will learn how to be an eagle.

Two days ago, on August 12, I was visiting near this nest and for the whole duration I could hear an eaglet, and whenever I had the chance I could see the silhouette of it, perched near the nest.
On my way home I checked around, hoping for a photo, but at that point the eaglet had moved our of sight.
