A feeding in progress, do you think?

Then here's what that tree looks like from down on the beach. Hard to tell for sure that it's a nest; all the branches are green. But it didn't use to be thick like that at the top.
It's a definite move up from the starter home next door.

wren, that looks like the same Nest i spotted all those years ago when we first discovered a Nest in that corner.
i remember you*d wanted me to post fotos, so that you could do the stats, & i never did get around to it.
Do you remember what year that was?
Maybe i could dig through my unposted fotos & find the ones i got way back when?

Booni, thanks for remembering!
Here is the posting of when you mentioned having maybe found the nest (it seems from the writing that you weren't sure, and now that I've seen the tree I understand why).

i had decided to gas up at the Co-op Gasbar, & as i left, i was scanning the Treetops, as usual.
Over behind the Co-op parking lot i spied a very unusual shape!
Too small for an Eagle, too big for a Robin, not the right shape for a Great Blue Heron.
Who WAS that?
i drove over there & parked in the exit driveway as no one was behind me, to get the best view of this Bird.
i took a few fotos & noticed the yellow feet!
i exited the parking lot & went to where i thought i*d be able to see this Bird better & with better lighting.
A Peregrine Falcon!

may 14 2015 15:06 - Peregrine Falcon





She kept making these very distinctive screechy calls that you can hear by clicking here.
Scroll a little way down the page & play the sound file under where it says Typical Voice.
Here she is, making those screechy calls.
She was focused on something elsewhere.
She wasn*t noticing me at all.



& here she is blasting off!
She is so fast, even my 1/320 of a second shutter speed isn*t fast enough, so she is a blur.







Lovely tail feather markings.

i guessed that she had flown to Little Tribune Bay.
i often see Birds there, that i don*t see in other places.
i went there & scanned the Trees, but did not spot her.
i walked up the dirt road towards the main road, as i was hearing those strange calls again!
This time there were TWO Peregrines, perched in the same Tree!
Here is the one who was in the top of the Tree.
i believe this is the same Bird as i have already photographed.
The lighting has changed & my settings are making my fotos too dark, so these needed lightening.

may 14 2015 15:13 - Peregrine Falcon



Here is the Peregrine who was perched lower down.
Now, like Eagles, the Peregrine female is larger than the male.
So this is why i am calling the first Peregrine spotted a female.
To me, the second one appears smaller, & he has another Bird in his feet!
Perhaps this is why the female was making those calls?
Here he is, blasting off with his prey.



Here she is, in the top of the Tree.
She is watching him go, & now she is about to blast off herself.









i am thinking that these two have a nest with nestlings somewhere!

On July 1st I took a walk from this nest to Dunlop Point and back. At both ends of my walk I spied on this nest for a while. I thought I heard some screeps a couple of times, but not clearly from the nest. Maybe an eaglet calling from the back side of the nest, away from me, or else this eaglet has flown the coop too, like at Nest 25.

There certainly seems to be plenty of white poopshot and bits of down clinging to the branches.

July 1st, 9:30



On the return I found an angle where I could get the new nest and the old one in the same photo.
New one closer to us on the left. The old nest is not quite as easy to see, but it still occupies the whole top of the tree on the right.
