Great photos Marg but I'm not sure about seeing the eaglet either. Lovely colours!
I'd love to visit this nest but don't want to intrude on the neighbourhood currently. Hard to say if that will be possible before the nesting season is over.
Thanks for the smile this morning.

I sent an email recently to a friend who lives close to the nest and he will advise me when/if he sees any eaglets. It is difficult for me to see the nest now because a neighbour's lilac tree has grown and the nest is hardly visible. :( :( He hears the eagles every day. :)

I am sorry to hear your visibility of the nest is hindered now Marg. How very sad.
I hesitate to park in the neighbourhood. Would feel as if I am invading their isolating. So many are out walking dogs at any given time. :(

Oh no, so sorry to read that the nest is difficult for you to see now Marg. I don't comment much on this thread but do check in every so often to see how things are going so will miss your pictures.

I'm sorry to hear that you have lost your view of the nest Marg. :(

Maybe a neighbourhood visit would be OK in a couple of weeks? Just before the end of the season? :)

I have recently seen an adult in the tree but on Saturday I saw what looked like an eaglet on a branch. I saw an adult in the nest a different day but couldn't see much else due to that tree blocking the view somewhat. I will see if my neighbour John who lives next door can see if there are any eaglets this year.
Taken last Friday.

I still see an adult on a branch or in the nest but my view now isn't good so I'm not sure if there are any chicks this year. :dunno:

Today through the telescope I spotted Ma and Pa on branches around 7am.

I had every good intention of getting some eaglet shots for you on Friday, June 26 Marg but at that specific time of day it decided to rain pretty good. I drove under the nest, could not see any youngsters visible from the car. Sorry! I shall try again. :hug:

Thanks Sandra, I don't think there are any eaglets this year. I haven't heard from my contact there.

I saw either Ma or Pa at the top of the tree I often see them either one or both but the view isn't as clear now because of trees and plants growing up I moved the telescope but this picture shows blockage from a palm tree. I will take the telescope outside one day on the patio and see if it is a clearer view.
(for some reason I couldn't crop the picture on my computer when I was in photos.)

I'm so sorry that you don't have a clear view any more Marg. :( But if the adults are still around maybe that means that there are some eaglets? :luck:

I live very near to this nest so could pop down later this week. Where is the best place to view from the ground?

Heather I have gotten my best shots of eaglets here from the beach. Turn right at the bottom of the stairs and walk along a very short way, looking up for the nest until you see it. I keep planning to visit and get thwarted by one thing or another. I will still plan to get down there too though. :luck:

Thanks Sandra! Sounds good but I'm not that familiar with this area so I don't even know where the stairs are :(

Almost across the road from the nest. Access to Beach. You'll find them no problem. :thumlft:

I finally got down to the nest site and out of my car despite the odd raindrop on July 7 around 2:00 pm. No eaglets seen. I got a nest photo from the beach and while there saw an adult in a perch tree down in Wilson Creek.
A lady I have seen often during the years says she was told by someone that there was 1 eaglet this season but she never saw nor heard one.
