Hi Lafarge regulars....I've been studying Annemie photo captures taken a few days apart and I believe, my opinion that these are two different eaglets because the first one is very slim and the other is bigger so I hope you don't mind Annemie of me copying the three photos you uploaded again with your permission just to compare the size of the fledglings Apollo and Artemis.....never on the nest tree at the same time after fledging :eag: :eag: JudyB had the right idea as there is definitely a difference in size :puzz:

could I be right by comparison or do they seem like the same eaglet? My opinion they are two different eaglets one is slim and the other is fatter :love: :eag: :eag:

Lady and one of the eaglets on the Pandora nest tree at 9.55 AM. Lady was down below the nest to the west and the eaglet was just west of the nest in the shade. At 11 AM on my return from shopping nobody was home in the tree on this very hot day :sunny:

Hi JudiW
You may just have a point here saying that what we think is one eaglet is actually two different eaglets, thank you for noticing and for your thoughts on that. I am fine with that you used my pictures to prove a point.
I myself have been wondering why eaglet looks so slim in one picture and then again seems bigger in another picture.
If you are right and we do see Apollo one day and Artemis on another day without noticing that we see different eaglets instead of just seeing the same one that would be great indeed. :woohoo:
That would mean that both of them a around and well.
The only thing that makes me wonder about these eaglets is that how come we never see them together?
I mean one of us ground observers is going there at least once a day and that for quite a while now. :puzz:
I am going to take a closer at these eaglet twins and see if I can notice any other differences.
I know that all of us Lafarge eagle lovers would be quite relieved knowing for sure that both of them are o.k.

Did someone else notice something along those lines looking at the pictures Eastvan Girl and I took?

AnnemieJudyB suggested it earlier in a blog here, as I hadn't read it when I thought the two looked different in size and head until after the fact, like the first to fledge Apollo was bigger in stature, maybe female? :dunno: :eag: than the second Artemis so that would be a male who is smaller in stature in a pretty pose copying Lady's pose to beat the heat...

but like JudyB and Gemini & Nightowl :wave: I've been following this nest since 2010 and the first hatched and fledged usually disappeared for a couple of days and was spotted always down at the Burrard Inlet shore where Ma and Pa hunted for food.....you need to look there down at the Lafarge Plant where the AN nest is or the old nest used to be …..as Pa is a creature of habit and always goes there to hunt for seagulls, ducks, coots, pigeons and fish and the odd rat :love: :fish:a little cove down on Burrard Inlet is their desired hunting grounds in the past anyway, the community garden is a first for me to see where he goes for food and its probably for critters not the veggies all to feed his eaglets......also Pa and Lady hunt down by the Inlet as they are Urban eagles should say city slickers :mihihi: and eat on the AN and also mate, so instead of catching Apollo on the nest tree check out the Lafarge Plant site and AN area, I'm sure if Pa had a desirable tree closer to the waterfront he'd be nesting there with Lady :thumlft: :hatch: :hatch: :eag: :eag: oh well maybe next season :luck:

Hi everyone,
I have been away on vacation for part of August so haven't been able to do any observations. But I am happy to read that perhaps both Artemis and Apollo have been visiting the tree, just at different times. Not sure if the eaglets are still around now, but I can start watching things again.

:wave: Hi everyone

We also have been away so we don't know if the eagles are still at home.
Whe have been by the nest a few times in the last three days but have not seen the eagles.

JudyW.
Thank you for your message.
Stan and I do check out the AN as time permits.
Stan checks it out at least once a day and he has never seen an eaglet down there.
Pa has been protecting that area all summer and Lady comes when she can.

Here is a picture I posted earlier in the year.


Laf. AN b.jpg

Welcome back Eastvan Girl, thanks for the link to David's interview Gemini, I really enjoyed it,

We had a great season and a big thank you to everyone that was a part of it. :thumlft:

Hi Annemie, Steamer and everyone who watches this nest,
I think we had a great season also. So glad our pair raised two eaglets successfully.
Last night there were seagulls dive bombing the tree but I couldn't see exactly who or what they were dive bombing. Not sure when our pair will be coming back but I'll be keeping my eyes open for them.

David should move the Lafarge AN to the location where they chopped down the eagle tree......good idea my opinion because pa and Lady Lafarge have moved their nest from Lafarge lands :luck:

Important Announcement!


David H. and the "Cam Cleaning Squad" will be attempting to clean the Delta 2 cam today at 12:30 pm - weather permitting!


If the rain is too heavy and the tree is slippery, the cleaning will be postponed to a later date - hopefully in the next week or so! The date will be posted as soon as it is known.

The latest from David:


HI All Delta 2 Keeners; -- Just reviewed with Myles as a shower just started here after a few hours of 'dry'.

Myles is prepared to climb if the tree gets about an hour of drying out of the canopy.

The challenge is the ropes get very slippery.

We will probably go to the site as every area is different. ANd as we know Delta and WR get half the rain of downtown VR.

I will call Sharon and Jean from the site and ask then to forward to others our last minute decisions !

All we can do is 'give it a try"


Cam Cleaning at Delta2 Postponed Because of Rain!

Due to the wet and unsafe conditions at the nest tree, David and Myles have decided to postpone the cam cleaning until Monday, Sept 17, 10:00 am when they will try again. The weather is supposed to be better then and hopefully the conditions at the nest will improve enough to try again.

Thanks for trying, David and Myles!
