Re: Surrey Reserve 2018-2019 Observation and Discussion

5:12-5:13 a.m.: Parent arrives with a piece of prey, eaglet on our left snatches it, then continues squealing at parent until parent flies off. Eaglet on our right watches as its sibling eats the piece of prey, but doesn't seem interested in trying to steal it.

Re: HALIFAX OSPREY NEST ... 2019

7:38-7:40 p.m.: I just rewound and saw C2! Congratulations, Ethel and Oscar! C1 is being fed, and already C2 is stretching up to be fed ... and even got a bite, as shown in my last screenshot. (Bev, I see that I have duplicated your screenshots from this time frame. Oops! :oops2: )

Re: Surrey Reserve 2018-2019 Observation and Discussion

7:55-7:58 a.m.: What a relief, indeed! The eaglet on our right is self-feeding! I'm surprised the eaglet on our left isn't trying to steal it (but maybe that eaglet got the first food drop).

7:51-7:52 a.m.: Food drop #2. This prey, whatever it is, looked a bit larger. One of the eaglets is trying to self-feed on it.

Re: Surrey Reserve 2018-2019 Observation and Discussion

7:19-7:20 a.m.: Hooray! Thank you for spotting this, Darlene! I don't know which parent it is, but I'm thinking it's Sur (I'm not seeing a limp). I don't know what the piece of food was (it didn't look like a whole animal), and I don't know which eaglet got it.

Re: Lafarge 2018/2019 Eagle Nest Discussion, Photos and Videos

I'm so sorry to learn of Lady's disappearance. However, it is good news that Pa seems to be handling this well and keep himself and his eaglets fed. We must also remember that this is not the first time he has gone through this. He lost his beloved Ma Lafarge in 2015, when crows chased her into a po...

Re: HALIFAX OSPREY NEST ... 2019

I'm guesstimating on the time, since I caught this on rewind:

10:00 a.m.: Changing of the guard. The parent who flew off brought a clump of seaweed or wet grass (?) to the nest.

Hi, Judy! Thanks for clarifying that it's Dad with the runny eye. That helps me tell him apart from Mom. 11:26 a.m.: Mom arrives with a small, black bird. A starling, perhaps? Or maybe a crow chick? 11:27 a.m.: Then Dad arrives, leaving behind two small chicks he delivered as prey, and takes off aga...
