A warm welcome to the Forum.  Enjoy the brilliant observations and witty comments made by the viewers of the Hornby Island Eagles.  When you get the urge, register into the Forum and join the conversations.  Have a great time.  Enjoy.
 
This is the 21st year of nesting for Ma and Pa Hornby in this same nest.  Over this period they have fledged 18 eaglets.  Will they be successful again this year?

We are all so pleased to have you join with us in watching and learning about these beautiful bald eagles on Hornby Island.  

Please feel free to discuss the eagles here in this thread - and screenshots are welcome here also.  

Pull up a chair, make yourselves comfortable and like Doug says "Enjoy"   :ecsmile

Oh I think I'm going to love it here - it's feeling like 'home' already.  Looks like mom Hornby was expecting us!  :eclove

While we were waiting to get the final set up with WE (still waiting for that I think lol) we did some testing and was able to watch the nest for a bit.

Here are some videos from that time.  From November 4, 2009

The first scenes.

The first views of the cam for this season. I probably didn't get the very first moments.

The next part we saw was this:  We asked Doug and Sheila and Boonie and Danny to come out and wave a towel at us. They waved a big white sheet.   :ecsmile



Then the Eagles came. Oh Joy,  we were so happy. Had to record this for all to see.!!  The first view of the eagles :ecsmile



First View of the Eagles continues

That starling seems to like hanging out in front of the camera!
Doug can*t figure out what they could be standing on all the time!
This one*s from his 2004-2005 dvd footage.
