Nest 16, 17, 18, 19 - 2020 season
« on: May 21, 2020, 09:19:38 AM »
This territory is on the north side of the Island, like our web cam Nest, but over to the right a few territories.
They seem pretty nomadic, & there have been years where we weren*t sure if they nested, as we never found a Nest.
But there is definitely an active pair here.
Last year there seemed to be some action in a Tree right at the water*s edge, but no Eaglets were ever spotted.

You can read about that, & find links to previous seasons here.
wooohoooo!

A neighbour of this Nest gave me the heads up that the Nest on the water that wren posted about last season was in use again.
He said he saw an adult carrying in a Fish, which seems to point to there being young in the nest this year.
So i made this my bike ride destination on this day.
Using his directions i did indeed find a good looking Nest here, & while i was watching, there were two adults & one flew in with a Fish!
i*ll have to go back & have another look one day.
Supposedly another neighbour has a good view in with a telescope from her driveway!

It was a sunny day & the tide was way out so i was thinking it might be a good day to walk out from the shore & try to look back & see what some of the Eagle Nests were doing.
i*d spoken with a neighbour of this Nest just a few days ago.
She looks at this Eagle Nest from her driveway with a telescope.
She said this Eagle pair perches on the Nest Tree, mates there, builds the Nest then takes it away again.
So she is thinking there are no Eaglets here.
i park my bike at the nearest beach access & start walking over to where i might look into the Eagles* Nest.
Right away some Killdeer are yelling at me & i even think i see one flopping around trying to get my attention.
So i wondered if there were young or a Nest in the area.
i step carefully, but they are yelling at me the w hole time.
There are also Canada Geese with young of different ages that were having a nice rest that i disturbed.
i try to be quick.
i am having a hard time spotting the Nest from the shore to get a picture of it.
From what i could see of it, i neither saw nor heard Eaglets or adults my whole time there.
