Wednesday Feb 27 - Lots of calling, trilling, and flying about in the morning.  A dark youngster was spotted in the His and Hers Tree around 7:20, s/he stayed only 10 minutes or so.  Mom and Dad mated on Constable's tree around that same time.  Later, Mom ate in the nest. Dad visited the nest and was also spotted in the "Glass House Tree" as well as the His & Hers Tree, the Peters' Tree and the BST.  

Youngster in His & Hers Tree (might have a partially light head?)



Mating on Constable's fir ~ Dad lifted high over Mom prior to mating



In the afternoon, Mom spent a lot of time on the BST and called softly to Dad when he landed in the nest and ate something; she did not join him at that time. Mom and Dad mated on the Peters' tree in the late afternoon.  A bit later, both visited the nest, and one remained there as the light faded.

Thursday Feb 28  - Another windy and rainy day on Hornby. Mom and Dad mated on the Peters' Tree in the afternoon - the wind was brisk and kept Dad in the air for a few seconds afterwards.

There have been lots of gulls and other birds flying around, the herring spawn should be happening soon and we expect to see even more wildlife visiting the area.

Friday - March 1
Another somewhat windy day.

In the morning, Dad brought a really long stick to the nest - looked like one of the pole-vaulter sticks he sometimes finds. It appeared that he landed really close to the stump, or at least on the prow.










Rumor has it he also brought grasses and/or a fish for Mom  - I was away part of the day - did anyone catch that?

Dad flies in with grasses (but it looks like a fish)

Also from Friday (March 1)

11:40 AM, Dad delivered something to the nest.  Mom flew from the BST making her little calls of food joy.  She picked up the gift, which was thought originally to be a fish.  But ... is it really a fish?  :puzzled2

there is news that some herring are spawning not far from Hornby Island


soon we can expect  great excitement off the shore,  as the wild life  enjoys the herring spawn, and the balls of herring spawn out in the waters
this screen cap from 2009  taken from the hwf sponsered cams of that time, is  a small example of what the water can look like during a spawn
note the light blue green strip?
so keep watching and post  if you see something ; )


I have been typoscount2  & nsbirder then Non4now, but no more,
onward to       ImpInNS

WOW! Lately when I looked in on Hornby it was windy and raining. I think we have a NEW camera don't we? These close ups were very clear. Is the camera higher?

Hiya Tarvena!
Did you see the rainbow today?
This new camera was put up almost a year ago.
It was raised higher in the Tree at the end of last summer.
So now we are able to get closer in to the Nest.
When it is a sunny day, the view in is quite clear!
The views of the Eagles on the stump or on the wide angle cam or when they are lower down in Constables* Fir or the Babysitting Tree are amazing.
wooohoooo!
