Re: Hastings Street/PNE Nest, Vancouver - 2018 & 2019

I saw one bald eagle today, Sunday, Nov 11, 11:30am. I will refer to him/her as parent eagle. He was on top of last year's nest tree. There were about 50 crows flying around creating lots of noise when he flew over. 20181111_113307.jpg PS, I just noticed the photo posted sideways and you may need to...

Re: Hastings Street/PNE Nest, Vancouver - 2018 & 2019

No Diana, I haven't seen them yet. I'm there sometimes after work at 7pm and occasionally on the weekend looking for them, but unfortunately they're difficult to spot before egg-laying time. It's too dark after work now, but will drop by again on the weekend. Too bad about the challenge and good luc...

Re: Hastings Street/PNE Nest, Vancouver - 2018

Hi Annemie and Stan. Have you seen the eagles since August 4? I've frequently checked the nest area, pond & racetrack and haven't seen them for a week.

Re: Hastings Street/PNE Nest, Vancouver - 2018

Pa eagle (or Ma?) landed on the pond log again at dusk around 9pm tonight to relax and drink water. The ducks alerted me with their squawking. I saw a new whole baby seagull under the nest tree, so I guess the eaglets must still dine above. I didn't see the eaglets tonight.

Re: Hastings Street/PNE Nest, Vancouver - 2018

Thursday, August 2: I saw the eaglets this morning and they're doing great. At 8:40am, I saw the first one on the power pole at the north end of the pond. I followed him to the race track and met up with the other eaglet who was on the grandstand roof. They both hung out on the rooftop watching the ...

Re: Hastings Street/PNE Nest, Vancouver - 2018

Saturday, July 28 evening: While walking along Hastings Street I heard the eaglets making lots of noise on top of the circuswest building by the Momji Japanese garden. The commotion stopped by the time I got there and I couldn't see what was going on, but one parent flew from the roof to the pond wi...

Re: Hastings Street/PNE Nest, Vancouver - 2018

Hi Karen. You were asking about the driveway that Annemie mentioned about. The entrance is by the blue booth at Hastings Street, near Renfrew. I call it the blue booth entrance. Attached photo: The Hastings Street sign is pointing east to the eagle nest tree down the path on the right. The eaglets l...

Re: Hastings Street/PNE Nest, Vancouver - 2018

July 25: I've popped by on most days since the eaglets fledged on July 14 and 15. I didn't spot them today, but usually see the eaglets in the nest tree or adjacent fir trees, calling out every so often for mom. The crows that fly overhead to the crow rookery in the evening seem to be leaving them a...

Re: Hastings Street/PNE Nest, Vancouver - 2018

July 17, I saw the two eaglets in the nest tree again. I guess the remaining nest fragments are not enough to hold food, as I saw two whole baby seagulls below the tree, too bad. (I think they're seagulls, not sure) July 18, One eaglet was in the nest tree, the other was three trees to the west and ...

Re: Hastings Street/PNE Nest, Vancouver - 2018

June 15 continued. Diana and Mike from Hancock and Angela from OWL had joined me early in the morning to search for eaglet2. We witnessed eaglet2's first high flight together when she flew from the ravine, to the center pond island, then quickly back to the fir tree at the west side of the pond wher...

Re: Hastings Street/PNE Nest, Vancouver - 2018

July 14 1pm, Bad news, no nest and the eagles are missing from the tree. I saw my friend at the pond and she mentioned that she saw Eaglet2 walking on the westside pond path at 10:30am and gave me the attached photo. We searched the pond ravine and saw mom hidden by the pond, so we knew Eaglet2 was ...

Thanks Annemie and Stan for keeping everyone up to date, it's a pleasure seeing you at the pond while watching the eagles. I will be posting photos on Wednesday, July 18. Sorry for the delay. I have lots of photos to narrow down (July 12-15) as I was using burst shots and won't be back on the comput...

July 10 after 6pm: Here's some exciting photos of eaglet1 who made it back up to the nest branch. He's having a hopping wing-flapping good time while eaglet2 watches.

Re: Hastings Street/PNE Nest, Vancouver - 2018

Thanks for letting me know about the gender rule, I get very personal when observing and naturally use he and she when I talk and used the names for dialogue. So I will refer to the eldest eagle Joey as eaglet 1 and Darla as eaglet 2. As I mentioned before, Joey (eaglet 1) is more advanced in its de...

Re: Hastings Street/PNE Nest, Vancouver - 2018

Just to clarify: Joey is the older eaglet. Darla, his younger sister was passively watching him flap his wings and hop around since June 15. That's probably how Joey ended up on the bottom branch on July 6. During that time in June, Joey was eating on his own while mom was beak-feeding Darla. Althou...

Sunday, July 8. I dropped by the pond at 10:30am today, stayed for an hour and met up with Diana and Mike. They were happy to see that the remaining nest material was holding up and still strong enough for mom to lay in. Joey was flapping his wings and still on the lower branch. He's been on the bra...

July 7, Saturday night. I shot these 6 photos after Stan mentioned that the nest was falling apart. Thanks Stan and Annemie for updating me. As I was leaving the pond at 9:45pm, the eaglets called out as Pa eagle flew in, he took off five minutes later. Then I could here a young bird calling from hi...

Re: Hastings Street/PNE Nest, Vancouver - 2018

My mistake Karen. My last three photos were taken yesterday on July 6. I accidentally put July 7, the computer download date. It's corrected now to July 6. All my other dates are correct. So, mom and the two eaglets were together on the nest branch in the morning on July 6. Then in the evening Joey ...
