So, i was working out in the garden yesterday & i could hear the Niner Eagles calling from the Nest Tree area.
But then i heard trilling, & i just couldn*t figure out what Tree it could be coming from?
Then i went, duh, & looked up.
SIX Eagles were soaring over my head.
That is where the calls were coming from!
A bit later, i heard calls again, & was able to connect the dots a BIT quicker & look up.
NINE Eagles soaring this time, & some quite low.
This was around 3pm.
Then later, i heard Mum Niner gulling.
i have been thinking that the Niners have eggs, just based on hearing so much calling coming from the Nest Tree area.
Their Nest Tree is inland, so why would they hang out there so much when they are so far away from their food source?
But that is just a theory, nothing proven.
But yesterday, i heard Mum Niner gulling, then she made the sounds of a food delivery coming in.
& then i heard an Eaglet!
i was amazed, to hear that already from so far away.
So, at least one Eaglet in the Niner Nest!

i could hear an Eagle gulling & the sound was close!
Turned out Mum Niner was in the Tree across the road from me.
The Niners use this Tree a lot, but unfortunately there is often greenery between me & them.
i was interested in the vocalizations, so i did a video.
She is pointed in the direction of her Nest Tree, & keeping an eye on things there.
She is making very soft vocalizations, so turn up your volume.
On the one hand they sound like food-coming-in calls, but then they also sound like the calls Eagles make when they are talking to their youngsters.
Sometimes you can see her beak move, but you don*t hear the soft sound, but i could hear it from the ground.
Perhaps she is reassuring her youngster/s on the Nest?
When she looks over her shoulder to our right, she is looking at Mum & Dad*s territory.
A minute in i just HAVE to swat that darn Mosquito!  mhihi
winterwren & i have both heard these soft uk-uk vocalizations, i believe at Shingle Spit?, Nest #6/7 Savoie? & defintely one of the Brigs makes these sounds.
i have heard Mum Niner make sounds like this here.

Nest #9 is a tough one to ob!
It is very difficult to view from the ground.
But i stick my camera out, every time i go by, in the hopes of catching something.
i am hearing at least one Eaglet from the ground now, perhaps two!
On this day, i could hear an adult.
i didn*t realize they were in the foto til i got home.
So, this is Mum or Dad Niner, & they are perched above & to the left of the Nest, which you can just see the sticks of to the right of the center of the foto.

i noticed a Bird who was smaller than an Eagle but bigger than a Passerine in my back yard Tree.
i believe this is the Merlin!

i took Otto down to the ocean to cool off in front of the Niners* territory.
It was hot & the tide was way out & beginning to come back in.
i saw these tiny silver Fish floating on the surface.
There was a fifth one that was still wiggling.
i wonder why they died?
Or if they are just stunned?
They seemed so fresh still.
Perhaps they got trapped in a puddle of Sea Water that got too hot or too little oxygen?
Anyone know what they are?

While we stood in the water, this group of Canada Geese appeared from the right.
They slowly drifted closer & closer, all in a line like this.
Looks like an adult at the head & tail of the line, & the rest are youngsters of this year!

Booni you find very interesting critters and plants.  The fish are interesting and I'm gonna guess Shiner Perch  but that is just a guess    maybe young?   http://www.fishingwithrod.com/fish_profile/shiner_perch.html

My lovely Raven pair are hanging out closer to my house again.
i*m thinking they nested somewhere further away this year & had young.
Now they are back to bonding as a couple!  heart
Look at the lovely setting sun light on them.

i took the doggies for a walk on the beach in front of Niner territory & they found an Elephant Seal having a snooze!
i never would have spotted him otherwise.
i got them away from the area & took this quick video from a distance of the big fella snoozing away.
Watch all the water drops flying away as he exhales into the seaweed!
There is something i just love about these gigantic beings.

♫♪sitting on a rock of the bay, watching the tide roll in .....♪♫

what a wonderful creature!  love the regal wave of the flipper, the flick of the tail, the leisurely scratch behind the ear, and of course the tiny bubbles as he breathes through the seaweed - priceless!

That is a great video, booni! I watched it more than once and loved all the details that Foldi mentioned.
