I'm posting this happy news on several threads so that everyone who followed Brigabooni and Niner can rejoice tomorrow.

The eaglets will be released at 11 A.M. at the Big Qualicum River Campground.  http://www.qualicumfirstnation.com/

Maj chose this area rather than releasing them to Hornby because it is known that there are a lot of fish in the river and there are still many eagles there. They will be able to learn to forage well and learn from others, and that is a very good thing for them.

Maj has said that you are welcome to attend the release. It will be filmed, too.  :eclove

AJL,

The Big Qualicum River is just across from Hornby.

I posted a map in the MARS topic.

For those new to this forum, the further adventures of Brigadan's sibling, the eaglet initially named Li'l Brig but later known as Big Bad Brig, are posted in the Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation section of this forum, in the thread for Mountainaire Avian Rescue Society.

After Brig's arrival to MARS, his story became woven with that of three other eaglets: Niner and Decker, from other nests on Hornby, and Rebecca, from Rebecca Spit on Quadra Island.

i took these fotos a year ago & am finally getting around to posting them.
The day Norm took Brig out of our carrying kennel, there were poopshots all inside & this pellet.
i found it heart-rending to see what the poor little guy had been eating!

That pellet tells a very sad story.    :ecsad
