The eagles are definitely using the Lansdowne nest this season. It will be interesting to see what happens in the fall. Perhaps another pair will build a nest in the Ten Mile Point area :) Marie's friend will be watching them :thumlft:

I visited the nest area yesterday with my sister and she saw an eagle flying into the nest. A short while later it squawked a few times but we didn't see it or any ea...

Hi Marianne, yes I think it was the male who brought in the bag. The eagles are opportunists and will pick up anything they believe to be food related :( Not the best situation for the little eaglets. It was a very wet dreary day at the nest today.
