I think so, Brenda - we're not currently able to reach it remotely. I'll put in a message to the folks nearer French Creek to see if they will be able to take a look.

Thanks for posting.

Denise Foster received some amazing photos from local photographer, Marnee Pearce, who captured images of a Bald eagle at the French Creek estuary that caught a fish and then was chased by a seagull. Marnee lives quite close to the French Creek estuary and enjoys watching and photographing wildlife there.

Thank you Denise and Marnee!




And the chase is on!

Good morning to all French Creek followers!

Yesterday we received wonderful news re the French Creek nest and we are happy to post the following email and video ......

Courtesy of Denise Foster: Chair, Save Estuary Land Society


"I'm thrilled to confirm that our French Creek eagle pair have two chicks in the nest they built last year at the Marina!!

On April 27th we observed what appeared to be an adult feeding young (in the video I sent you earlier). After that there were only sightings of one or both of the adults in the nest or perched in the tree.

Perhaps due to the horrible, lashing rain and wicked winds we've experienced the chicks were hunkered down and possibly protected by an adult deep in the nest and out of sight. As David mentioned, their nests are always so much deeper than they appear to be when seen from down on the ground.

It's so wonderful to see this pair with two healthy chicks!"
