Nest 21 The Marsh at Whaling Station Bay 2021 Season
« on: February 19, 2021, 09:01:53 AM »
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.

My friend stevi kittleson is a fabulous photographer, & she also has a good eye!
She often sends me fotos of injured Wildlife, so that i can be aware.
She recently sent me these fotos of The Marsh pair, who were perched in a Tree on the east end of Tribune Bay on this day.
