This is where we*ll post observations, fotos, videos & discussion of the Nest #21 territory.
This Nest is in a one of a kind spot, overlooking a huge marsh, & has a very interesting territory that includes Cape Gurney & lovely dry earth flora that is quite different from other areas of Hornby.
Lots of Pine Trees grow here, & Arbutus, which like the drier zones.
It is a lovely place to walk around.
There are some very interesting houses in this neighbourhood.
These Eagles have a HUGE shore territory.
It includes the east arm of Whaling Station, Cape Gurney, & the shore towards Helliwell to where the Helliwell pair Nest.
i think wren spots lots of interesting shore/water Birds at Cape Gurney, & once she even spotted a Humpback Whale!
i have a friend who lives on the Marsh, & she sees Eagles bathing there, that might be this pair, or could be the Helliwell pair.
In the time leading up to & during Herring Spawn season, Eagles dot every Tree in this neighbourhood.

We had gone for a lovely walk on Whaling Station.
The Sun was out, but at the high tide line where we walked, we were in shade.
There were lovely Ducks & shore Birds at the water line, which was a good ways away, so we stayed up high to give them space.
Collected a FULL grocery bag of plastic!
That feels good.
Afterwards it was still sunny so we drove around Whaling Station to see if we could see any Eagles.
We spotted the Nest #21 pair in one of their usual perch Trees!
i*d say this first one is the male, lower down in the Tree.

Thank you for showing us this part of Hornby and the eagles who live in that area, booni.
