We went down to Phipps Point for a walk & turned right this time, north, towards Nest #4 territory.
This Eagle was in the Trees over out head & we flushed her before i even knew she was there.
But she didn*t go far.
She landed in this small Tree right over our heads & let us pass this time without flying off.
She was VERY taken up with the adults way out on the shore at the water line, looking for Midshipmen!
Eye still dark brown like a juvenile, yet look how much yellow there is in the beak!
There is so much variety in how their colouring changes as they get older.
Top of head is whitening.
Perhaps a two year old Eagle, an immature?
i LOVE the white & brown mottling of feathers!  heart

Checking out the adults, in case maybe they have any food to spare, perhaps learning about Midshipmen & how to get them, too.





Monitoring the more experienced adults.

I just received an email from one of the neighbours of the Phipps Point nest.
He writes that the eagles have had an unsuccessful nesting attempt at their new location.

Cali, Booni's post shows a visitor, a 2-year-old youngster. This year's eaglets would have barely shown above the rim of the nest at the time she took those photos.

More news from the neighbours, meanwhile, and it turns out you are partly right about there being two nests!
A neighbour told me that, after moving much of the nest material from the old nest tree to a tree in his yard, the eagles seem now to be moving it all again, back to the old tree! This I have to see!
All this construction seems to go on without any eaglets in either nest, however.

Never a dull moment...
