No I mentioned it to Christian the photographer for David and he said you didn't like the names David and Hancock so I suggest Lafarge Jr. and Vancouver for the two eaglets at the Pandora nest?

Apollo and Amities are okay we need a vote because Flapper and Bouncer and Lafarge Jr and Vancouver are okay

Hey everyone,
Not sure if we have a bit of a situation at the Pandora nest. At 7:30 tonight I was observing the eaglets in the nest. An adult then flew into the nest and an eaglet got knocked out. I watched it fall down to a lower branch about 10-12 feet (?) below the nest. I could easily see the eaglet from the east side alley between Pandora and Triumph Streets. It was calling quite a bit.
Will the eaglet be able to make it back up to the nest to get food? Am I worrying over nothing? Any suggestions?
I will try to post a picture, and in it you can see the nest at the top and the eaglet a little lower down on a branch.

I wouldn't be too worried at this point Eastvan Girl. It may find a series of hops to get back up to the nest. If it ends up on the ground though its a different ball game. Call OWL :yes:

That's branching the eaglet will be fine unless it ends up on the ground, it will have racoons and skunks to deal with :ohmy: Okay is that what you call the Lafarge eaglets "the twins" Karen? or are the twins some other two eaglets say at the Delta nest or Harrison?

Good morning JudiW.

Karen posted that the '' twins '' are now called Apollo and Artemis.

Apollo and Artemis were two twins born by the king of the gods Zeus and Leto, a daughter of the Titans Coeus and Phoebe.

Thanks for your report on the Lafarge nest EastvanGirl. Yes, if one is on the ground call OWL as Steamer suggested.

I observed one eaglet this morning and the other must have been hiding somewhere else in the tree. Nobody on the ground and there appears to be a day long meditation/yoga session going on in the back grass of the eagle nest property under the nest. Lots of eyes if anyone comes down :yes:

At noon both adults were at the nest. Ma doing a feeding session on the nest with either Apollo or Artemis and Pa up in the shade on his favorite westerly perch.

Hi Everyone,
From my window I can see the eaglet still on a lower branch. The other eaglet is in the nest and an adult on a west branch - to me it seems like it's on an even lower branch than last night. I will walk over to the nest after dinner and check things out, and good to know I can OWL if things turn pear-shaped.

Annemie and I just came back and we spotted it too Eastvan Girl about 40 ft under the nest south east of the tree trunk right above some broken off large branches. Binoculars were a big help this time. Was pretty quiet and not in distress....which is good :yes:

Annemie took several photos so her pictures will be posted sometime later.

Your recent picture was a big help to focus in on where to look :Cool:

Apollo and Artemis are the names of the twins at the Pandora nest as Karen B. has indicated.

Hopefully the one that landed and is perched down below in the tree will find a way back to join its sibling above in the nest :luck:

Hi JudiW :bye 1:

Karen was referring to the Lafarge eaglets! The Delta eaglets have already been named and there was only one eaglet at HM (which did not thrive) and it was named Chips and there were no eaglets at WR this year.

And yes, you are correct in saying " ..... the twins as the Lafarge eaglets 2018 are not twins."

In reality the 2018 pair of eaglets at Lafarge may not actually be twins! However, because they look so much alike and are difficult to tell apart and we, as observers, have had so much trouble distinguishing them, they have often been referred to as the "twins."

Therefore, it seemed fitting to name them after the twin gods Apollo and Artemis, indicating how much alike the eaglets were.

Ok thank you I think those names are fitting for the Lafarge eaglets at the Pandora nest woohoo :woohoo: now they are named I and the regulars can continue to watch Apollo & Artemis fledge and have another successful season congrats Pa and Lady Lafarge......we love you and are so happy that this nest was successful in 2018.

Now ladies we need to get David and the Hancock Wildlife Foundation people to replace the cam at Lafarge and move it to the Pandora nest site for next season, do it when Pa and Lady follow the salmon runs to Campbell River....just a suggestion :love:
waiting to see if Apollo and Artemis fledge successfully......love all your hard work Annmie taking and posting captures of the Lafarge eagles from the ground :thumlft: and thanks to all our regulars who take captures and post from the ground and not a cam :thumlft: we need one :luck: :vid: :grhug:

Can you see Artemis?
S(he) is in the picture but very well hidden. :mihihi:

Artemis is still sitting in the same spot where it was sitting in Eastvan girl's picture she made on July 14th.
That means Artemis has been sitting there for at least 22 hours. :(

Laf. July 15,18 k.jpg
Artemis was sitting quietly. I hope (s)he was fed as it was still 31 degrees C. while we were at the nest.

Thank you Karen for posting the names for the ''twins''.
I am glad you like the names JudiW. and thank you Gemini for clarifying everything.
Nice to see you here Irish Eyes and thanks Eastvan girl for your pictures.

We do need to check on Artemis today and if possible a few times to make sure Artemis has the strength to sit
on a branch for such a long time.
I have seen eaglets sitting on a branch for 3 days and then still falling to the ground on the 3rd day due to
tiredness.
We also have to make sure that Artemis is getting fed as it is the only way for that eaglet to get fluid and it is very hot again today.
:grhug:

As soon as I meet the new owners of the property the nest is on I will give them O.W.L.'s phone number and speak to them about a few other things they need to know. As for a camera on the nest JudyW. we would all love that and I see if anything can be done now that the new people moved in.

Very good news to report! Both eaglets are back up in the nest location. One on a south east branch off the nest and the other to the northwest on a branch near Pa on his usual perch.

All is good for Apollo and Artemis again :)

Annemie, unfortunately, it is more likely the matter of obtaining sponsorship or the equivalent in $$$ that will stop the process of having a camera on the Lafarge nest than it would be the property owner not giving permission!

Also, was there not some mention of the tree actually being on city property - something about the property line actually being on the other side of the tree I think? Or was I dreaming that?

Wonderful news about Artemis! And thanks again for the great pictures and reports Stan and Annemie!
