Re: Glacier Gardens Eagles, Juneau Alaska - 2019 Season

Hi Journi, I recorded a video of the nest activities earlier today. The eaglets were preening and scratching, and waiting for someone to bring them food. First Mama come in with a big bunch of moss/grass, then Papa came in with a big stick, nearly knocking the eaglets over while trying to reposition...

Re: Goldstream Eagles, Malahat BC - 2018/2019 Season

I made one more visit to this nest today. The eaglet successfully fledged in the last two days. It was perched in a snag a few trees over from the nest tree. It called out softly twice and while we were on another dock it flew off towards the nest. We could not see the nest tree from where we were s...

Hi Marianne, I asked Tina at the Glacier Gardens last year if they would provide a date stamp and their answer was no, because it would distract the visitors who were viewing the nest on the screen at the gardens. Same with sound. Maybe they will change their minds for next season! It does make it d...

It was partially hidden by the leaves and I wasn't able to capture a photo of the entire eaglet. We tried a few different vantage ...
