Still hearing calling so going in on North to take a look.

No one on nest, or on the tree where they were earlier.


3:14 pm
I'm doing a slow pan in all directions to see if I see anyone. Must say their white heads would stand out better if it were a bit sunnier!


They are fairly loud so need to be fairly close - but there is a lot of tree above the nest, and no way to look up there.


3:17 pm
Someone snuck in while I was panning around.

Doing some digging in the nest and checking the perimeter.

Carving his/her name into the tree trunk??
20200327_028.jpg

I'm hearing the other eagle calling from somewhere nearby.


3:26 pm
It looks as if he(?) is staring at the tree trunk - which seems a very strange thing to look at. I know that our Surrey Eagles are experts at standing in the nest and looking around - but they look around, not at tree trunks.

Unless this is actually Lady - in which case she might be thinking about something else - though I haven't noticed any contractions. And the calls from somewhere sounded more like a female eagle, though I'm not good at telling them apart by their calls.

The one in the nest moved to the other side
20200327_030.jpg

And now he(?) is calling - and the calls sound to me more like a male, though as I said - I can't always tell.


A lot of looking around.

It's amazing to me to see how intricate the side of the nest is!


And the adult flew off at 3:50 pm.

I'm afraid I had a phone call so wasn't at the computer to try to follow.

Dinner time here - have a good evening, everyone!

Fund Drive for Hard Drives

Good afternoon, everyone! I have just learned that we do not have the hard drives we need to record our cams as we approach little chick time - and we do not have the funds necessary to buy them.

These are the high resolution drives that are connected directly to the cams at the site, making it possible to record high quality videos of events at the nests - and we usually have them up and running before the eggs are laid. As you know, we already have eggs at three of our four nests, and they are likely any day now at the fourth nest - so time is of the essence.

Our tech person Ken is estimating that it will cost about $7000 to buy the high quality, high capacity drives needed for our 9 cams, and while we are keeping up with our regular monthly expenses, we don't have the extra money needed to buy and install the hard drives.

I know this is a hard time financially for many of us, with many businesses closed - but it may also be a time when some of us are staying home and watching the eagles after cancelling planned trips or dinners out - and I'd like to ask those who can to contribute towards these hard drives.
