Views from the Hornby Nest & Territory Cam
« on: April 25, 2012, 11:27:31 AM »

This is a reference topic that will show you what the Trees we see on the cam look like & are named, & how they look from the ground as well.

cali did a bunch of scaps of the different Trees we see on the cam, thank you cali!  :hearts2

Here we see mishi*s Tree with a young Eagle perched there & to the right is the flat top Tree that is the Niners* Babysitting Tree
The tallest Tree to the far left with the dead tops is one of The Fork Trees.



This is Linus Tree, named after one our members who did a fabulous painting of Mum & Dad in this Tree which was used as a very successful fundraiser!  :heart



This is Fosters* Fir, with the dead top.
In the background are the rocks of Sandstone Point & in the far distance is Tralee Point.



Here we have Fosters* Fir again on the left & Constables* Fir on the right.



The green you can see lower right is the right hand edge of Grassy Point, as are the rocks you can see in the distance.

Niner perch Trees

The dead topped one we see from the cam to the left of the grey box is on the left.
The one on the water on the right.
The one on the water has an Eagle perched there.
We often see one perched in the dead top of the Tree on the left.

Since the cam has been moved up the Tree, we can now see the His & Hers Tree!
We should be able to spot Mum & Dad in these trees quite often!
This is one tree that splits into two tops, & it is at Grassy Point.
Maybe we can see whether Mum uses one top & Dad the other?

These are two more Trees we can see from the cam.
They are both on the same street as the cam in Gregg*s Tree, & are to our right.
 
october 9 2012  13:27 - beautiful old Fir
 



october 9 2012 13:36 - Constable*s Fir




& this is another view of Mishi*s Tree, showing how it has two tops/trunks, that start off from the ground as one trunk.

We see this Tree on the cam behind Constables* Fir.
It is on the lot next door.
Here is a foto of it from the road behind the Nest.

These trees are to your right when you go down to Grassy Point.
Mum & Dad perch in the ones the closest to the water.

This is the glass house, as in the picture that booni posted above.  In this picture you can see Dad perched high atop this tree that we can see from the cam. 



Dad and Mom atop the glass house tree.



In this picture we see Constables fir (closest to us) and the Babysitting Tree.  There is an eagle perched atop the Babysitting Tree.




This is Greggs tree.  The branch that I have seen Mom and or Dad perched on is circled.  The smaller red circle shows 'where' on the branch that I have seen them perched.

One sunny day Chester & i walked all across Grassy Point to see where we could see the cam from & to see where the cam could see us.
i took some fotos of what i thought we could see from the cam.
This is the rocky point of Grassy Point.
To the left is a gravelly bay & to the right is the beach in front of the Nest.
There is a huge ship going by in the distance.
 
october 9 2012 12:53 - Grassy Point
 


This is the view from higher up Grassy Point.
You can see the lovely golden grass after which the Point is named.
In the distance is Texada & the lime mine.
To the right is the beach in front of the Nest
To the left is the bay & the His & Hers Tree.
Straight out ahead, after the grass ends, is the rocky conglomerate point that i photographed above.




The same view, but a little closer to the rocky point.
