Doug*s Canada Goose egg - july 29 2009
He found it in a creek on the eagle beach, after a crow flew away from it.
It is almost as big as his hand!
Some people thought one like this may have been in the nest, & Hope was playing with it.

Today i was biking by the nest as it was getting dark just after 5pm.
i looked up & an eagle was on the nest.
It looked as tho they were digging in the nest, as their tail was bobbing up & down.

Mum & Hope July 17 2009 10:12:20 AM
Hope was in the nest by herself when Mum came flying in from our right.
Hope started to mantle, & then realized Mum had no food.
Mum flew over Hope*s head & landed on the stump.
Hope then started jumping & flapping & screeping all over the nest, trying to get Mum*s attention.
Turned out there was something in the nest that Hope wanted to eat & she wanted Mum to feed her!

Hope is pestering Mum here still.
Look at her neck feathers all ruffled up like a big tough girl eagle.

Okay.
So, since i haven*t any fresh fotos to share with you, i*ve been working on this fantasy i have of getting back to all the fotos & videos i have from Hope*s fledge day!
It took me two whole evenings to go thru all of them & make notes of the best ones.
i took a lotta fotos that day.  nod
So last night i dug up some pertinent seek points to go with the fotos.
Cast your minds back to july 21.
It was a hot summer day & the sun came up waaaaaaaaaay earlier than it does now.
i was up with the alarm at 4:30 so that i could have coffee & watch the nest a bit before heading out to work.
While we all watched, Hope flew up to the wide angle camera & out of sight!
But we could still hear her.
Now, go back to that day with a seekpoint made by our snookums.
Turn down your speakers or put cotton in your ears!
& prepare to laugh out loud!
p.s. AJL i think i hear your mystery bird in this clip when Hope is lying down in the nest!

So Booni, do you think Ajl's mystery bird of the current nestover viewing is Hope?  Oh, and  yes, I did cry.  heart
