Doug*s Canada Goose egg - july 29 2009
He found it in a creek on the eagle beach, after a crow flew away from it.
It is almost as big as his hand!
Some people thought one like this may have been in the nest, & Hope was playing with it.

Today i was biking by the nest as it was getting dark just after 5pm.
i looked up & an eagle was on the nest.
It looked as tho they were digging in the nest, as their tail was bobbing up & down.

Mum & Hope July 17 2009 10:12:20 AM
Hope was in the nest by herself when Mum came flying in from our right.
Hope started to mantle, & then realized Mum had no food.
Mum flew over Hope*s head & landed on the stump.
Hope then started jumping & flapping & screeping all over the nest, trying to get Mum*s attention.
Turned out there was something in the nest that Hope wanted to eat & she wanted Mum to feed her!

Hope is pestering Mum here still.
Look at her neck feathers all ruffled up like a big tough girl eagle.

Okay.
So, since i haven*t any fresh fotos to share with you, i*ve been working on this fantasy i have of getting back to all the fotos & videos i have from Hope*s fledge day!
It took me two whole evenings to go thru all of them & make notes of the best ones.
i took a lotta fotos that day.  :nod2
So last night i dug up some pertinent seek points to go with the fotos.
Cast your minds back to july 21.
It was a hot summer day & the sun came up waaaaaaaaaay earlier than it does now.
i was up with the alarm at 4:30 so that i could have coffee & watch the nest a bit before heading out to work.
While we all watched, Hope flew up to the wide angle camera & out of sight!
But we could still hear her.
Now, go back to that day with a seekpoint made by our snookums.
Turn down your speakers or put cotton in your ears!
& prepare to laugh out loud!
p.s. AJL i think i hear your mystery bird in this clip when Hope is lying down in the nest!

Wasn*t that fun boys & girls?
What???
Your ears are bleeding?
But wasn*t it WORTH it??   :mhihi

Okay, so, since i was on the way to work anyway, i moved a little faster so that i*d have time to stop at the nest on the way & get some fotos of Hope on the wide angle camera in the beautiful sunrise.
Fortunately my work that day was a little flexible.
So flexible that i never even showed up!
Here is what i found when i got to the nest at just before 6:44am.
Isn*t she magnificent??

Of course, nothing escapes our young eagle-eye.
Even tho i was across the street in the yard in front of the blue roof house, Hope spotted me!

Not seconds after spotting me, she also spotted a bird!

Nancy, i took so many fotos that day.
i posted a few at the time.
The next day i took more, & on & on til the eagles left.
i*ve gotten so behind on posting all my fotos.
& this stash has been particularly daunting because there are so many to wade thru to find the good ones.
Now i*m kinda glad i still have them to delve into.

Okay, so it*s been driving me crazy.
Those nicks on Mum*s wing feather tips...
i KNEW i*d see those sometime last season, & used them as a way to tell Mum from Dad in some of my fotos.
i*ve been thru all my fotos, looking for them, but do you think i could find them in any of my fotos???  :ecnono

So, today i went to the Co-Op to pick up the two framed fotos i entered in the Group Show that they featured there all of december & january.
i figured, what the heck?, anyone can enter, & they said i could bring in two fotos, so i did.
Well, they took all that down now to make room for the new stuff for the february show, which i took fotos of for you today & will post about later.
So we had to go in & collect our stuff from the Group Show.
i was looking at my framed fotos when i got home, to remind me which ones i*d entered, & what caught me eye?
Mum*s feather nicks!!
Yaaayyyyy!
This foto is from a whole series of Hope in the nest watching Mum fly in which hopefully i*ll get around to posting one day...

Click foto, then click the larger foto for the huge size.

Okay, i*ve just found some videos i had stored on Photobucket from the 2009 nesting season.

Here, i am standing on the beach in front of the cabin to the left of the blue roof house.
The Big Rock is right behind me.
These people own the nest tree property, & have very kindly never developed it at all!!!
When i first started photographing the nest, this is where i spent a LOT of my time.
One day i went roaring down there & set up my camera & started photographing, only to realize that the cabin now had occupants!
i was so wrapped up in what i was doing that i didn*t even notice!   :blush
Good thing they turned out to be really nice people.
Here is a video of Dad on the edge of the nest trilling, then flying to the Peters*s Tree.

Now, the webcam was down the day Echo hatched, so Doug made some dvd footage.
i played the dvd on my computer, & made videos of the screen playing the footage.
Part three.
This looks like Mum feeding Hope while Echo is escaping his eggshell.

part four.
Echo is out of his shell lying down, while Hope bobbles beside him, & Mum stands on the edge of the nest.

Ah Booni, THANK YOU!!! 

We are so lucky, blessed, grateful and in awe of these videos.  It is one amazing thing to watch from nest view and now we see in living color and motion the view from the beach?  That is so great.  You are so great!  I wondered where you were last evening and now I know.  You were making our day!!

Big hugs and much love,
Rajame  :heart

Gee, Boonib, I am almost speechless. I can't tell you how wonderful it is to see the footage of Echo's hatching. How can a silly little bird hatching cause me to cry like a baby?

Simply...thank you!

OMG!!!   Booni, your photos and videos, along with the stories they and you tell, are such a beautiful gift to us.  We are so lucky that you take the time to share your works and words with us.

And to see Hope and Echo, oh, what a lovely (yet, as we know, somewhat bittersweet) treat.  The feeding of Hope, so gentle and so amazing as Echo joins the family, is just so special.  My thanks to Doug for sharing the recording, and to you for bringing it to us.

Now, to get my tissues.....

Booni, what a treat! Thank you for posting these videos of Hope.  I can't believe I am sitting here with tears in my eyes!  What an eagle!  :eclove
May she fly free for a long, long time.

Booni!

Thank you. I don't remember seeing this footage and it is a treat. I could not help but notice the "gap" in the feathers... similar to Dad's. That's a sure fire way to know Hope.

Sweet and sassy that Hope!
Rajame :heart
