Good Morning everyone. That’s wonderful news. I have seen several “ manufactured” eagles nests that have been very successful. Hope Mom and Dad return and finish preparing this one for the new season :luck:

We are working on a starter nest for the North Eagles this week! Mrs. North has given us a look-see, followed the river, perched in favorite trees, and caught a few fish. We've also seen Sandhill Cranes, Red-Headed Woodpeckers, Yellow-shafted Flickers, deer, and cattle, just to name a few. The valley of the Norths is a busy place!

Pictured below is photographer, researcher, and eagle-nest whisperer Kike Arnal. Kike is building the platform that will hold the North nest. This site is more challenging than N2B since it is built out on a Y-branch and not the snug crotch of a tree.

We have a whole crew preparing sticks, helping to lift things into the nest, getting cameras ready (well, John is pretty much handling audio and video prep, which is a huge job), and helping to keep everyone fed and watered over a long, hot day.

We hope Mr. and Mrs. North like their starter nest: it is a lot of work, but we think it is turning out well!
