This is a beautiful old Fir Tree Nest, on a road that is super busy in the summer months.
It is right across the road from a bustling summer time campsite, near the Hornby Co-Op, & on one of the main routes to get to the fabulous sandy Tribune Bay beach.

You can find last year*s posts about this Nest territory & links to previous seasons* posts here.

Today we were walking on the beach at Little Trib & there was an Eagle perched in this perch Tree.
i also heard the female doing her gulling call, closer to the Nest Tree.
So it appears this pair has returned for the season.

We went for a walk down on the beach of Big Trib, even though it was blasting wind & intermittent rain.
It was exhilarating!
We had the beach to ourselves except for a big handful of Eagles that flew up as we headed to the beach.
We figured there must be some kind of food washed up in the storms, but couldn*t find it.
But Otto did!
It was some kind of globby blobby thing, i tried to get it out from between the logs to make it easier for them to get at but had no luck.
We walked to the tennis court & back & this one Eagle was at the blob pulling & pulling even as we approached.
Then they flew up to a big hunk of driftwood that has been set up into the sand somehow for years.
i kept thinking they*d fly away but they didn*t so i got my camera out in the rain.
i just used auto settings, i didn*t think i*d have time to use manual, but i should have!
Turned out i had lots of time, this Eagle did not fly away & look how close we are to them!
i*m not happy with the focus sharpness of these but i rescued them as best i could as they are kinda cool!

You can see the blasting rain in these.
What a beautiful Eagle!
Still has a bit of dark in the beak & in the head feathers, so probably turning adult in the spring!
 


Gorgeous!
Gorgeous!
& look at those feet!
i believe lovely orange feet like this is a sign of good health.

Just had to post this one even though...
Probably the best shot, but subject is not fully in frame!
Figures.
i think this is a female.
Look at her lovely orange commissure!

She obviously wants to eat, & we are keeping her from her food!
 

 


Not sure why the tail feathers seem kind of reddish?
 

Okay!
Okay!
We*ll leave you to it!
i am just NOT going to get sharp fotos in this rain anyway.
