Booni, what is the stump-like thing behind Mom in the video  -  is this another tree with a dead part or is it some Man-made piece?  Looks like it wants to have a camera put onto it!

Wonderful video and narrative, Wonderful   :eclove

Booni,  I appreciate your work so much.  I don't think you
could possibly know how much joy you bring to those of us
who will never have the opportunity to see one up close and
personal.  Many years ago, I saw one flying high above me
with the beauty of the sun shining through the white tail
feathers.  I shall never forget that special picture.

Thank you.  Watermaid

Booni.....I simply don't know what we'd do without you.  Your photos add so much to this experience... for so many of us that don't have the privilege of seeing eagles soaring overhead and perching nearby.  Thank you so much for ALL you do!

Booni, Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I really, truly appreciate you for taking your time to share your wonderful sightings with us  :hearts2 It's very generous of you. When you write, your feelings are so true and your joy so pure, it's like being there myself.

 :thumbup: wow....I can't believe its getting started again.  As I had said earlier, I didn't even come into this wonderful site until like April or May, but I have been "so" hooked ever since.  You'd think I was the mom or grandma of these birds and you all are so amazing in how you relate everything, to someone like me, who knows nothing, about them, except that I love them.

Booni:  (Migizi Mazinaakizan Quay)
Thanks so much for the picture and the video....that settles it....I AM going to buy that cabin!!!  :ecwink Now to just convince the owners to sell it!!
I can easily remember walking by that spot several times every day....My heart is so full with the experience that I had in Hornby.....and with the opportunity to meet and spend time with you, and of course Dookie......

Booni, Mom sure is a stately-looking eagle!  Thank you for posting your photos of her here.   :ecsmile
