Good evening :rh: Checking in to say that I’ve been out of commission but just caught up. Bev, as usual, you have been doing a WONDERFUL job following and zooming and posting. I think you are the heart behind this cam and I’m so grateful. Thank you also to all of you who care so much about this nest. I was so happy to see Dad and Lady together on the nest. You must have jumped with joy when you saw them Bev! You too Heather! Have a great day tomorrow :grhug:

Thank You!
We are off to a great start on our Fall fundraising drive and thanks to many of you, we have raised over $3000 towards expenses for the Harrison Mills cams, for an improved internet service for all our cams, and for our general forum expenses.

We have 10 new nest adoptions:
Delta 2:
Alice and Richard Currie (Lantz_56)

Harrison Mills:
Irish Eyes
Kyle and Neil Hardy
gemini
Irish Eyes in Honor of Chips
Yolande Proctor

Surrey Reserve:
Irish Eyes
JudyB
gemini

White Rock:
Sandy_W
And a number of other donations towards our general expenses. :thumlft:

I should mention that all donations go where they are needed the most, so when I adopted Surrey Reserve, I knew the money I donated would probably not be used for the Surrey Reserve cams - which are sponsored by Dawson & Sawyer, the developers who worked with David Hancock and the City of Surrey to make sure their housing project included a home for the eagles as well as the homes for people they were building. However, by adopting the Surrey Reserve nest, I'm letting David Hancock know that I'm excited about this opportunity to meet a new pair of eagles, and see how they adapt to the nest that was built just for them. And I'm happy to report that they seem to be moving in - we've seen them bringing in nesting material and some branches! Here's a great picture by gemini of one of them moving a large wishbone-shaped stick they brought in a minute earlier, while the other one looks on to make sure it's placed just right:
Image

And I'm realizing that while this is a fundraising drive, perhaps I should also be calling it an Activity Drive. We do need financial support to keep this wonderful organization and website and forum and cameras going - but we also need more people to watch the cameras and post observations. If you look at the threads for our primary nests (Delta 2, Harrison Mills, Surrey Reserve and White Rock), you'll see that most of the posts on each thread are by the same 3 or 4 people. And they would love some help!

You don't need to know which eagle is which - just post the time (the nests are on Pacific time, so that's what we use for posting) and what you saw - "An adult eagle landed on the nest" or "some bird I can't identify was perched next to the nest for a few minutes" or "a very brave squirrel was sitting in the nest." Most of the time, the Topic Assistants, Zoomers and other frequent posters can use the DVR function on the cam to look back to the time of your event and add more details and a screenshot - but it's so much easier if they know where to look. And they will be happy to share the clues they look for to know which adult is which - or their knowledge of other birds seen in the area. You don't need to watch constantly, or commit to watching at a certain time - just whenever you happen to be watching, post what you see. Or didn't see - a post like "I was watching the North cam from 10:30 to 11:00 and did not see any activity on the nest" is actually very helpful as we learn when the eagles are most likely to visit at this time of year.

People who watch a lot and post a lot are great - as are large donations. But we also need people who can post their observations occasionally or who can give $25 or $50, or join our monthly donor program at $10 or S20/month. There's a song I learned years ago with the line "Many stones can form an arch, singly none, singly none." Our new Surrey Reserve cams aren't that far from the Peace Arch - and I'm visualizing how all of our observations and donations can build a mighty arch of information about eagles and encourage people to make decisions to support the eagles and other wildlife that share the planet with us. Please help.

You can click here to go to our donations page - and remember that the amounts listed under various projects like Eagle Cam Repairs and Monthly Support are suggestions - you pick the amount you give. Thank you.

If you have questions, please contact me ([email protected]) or gemini ([email protected]).

Thank you so much Judy for the update. :thumlft: ... that is great and like you said we do need more members to contribute and I like the change to Activity Drive ~ hopefully that will encourage more watchers to post and contribute .. :luck:


Please make a donation if you can...... every penny counts !

7:19-7:20am

I zoomed over the trees to the right of the stacking tree I saw a least two eagles flying in front of the trees facing the water .. too fast for me to get a s'cap and I zoomed over the trees on the right of the lone tree and I didn't see any eagles there .

It is really too hard to see out front right now .. I have cams on the nest
