Hi Gemini and Vicki :wave:

Thank you for the link Gemini, it is an awesome interview, I really liked it.

Hi Vicki, we have not seen the eagles as we were not home for a few days. I cannot tell you when they left, but I know that they are gone now for sure as they never stick around when the PNE starts.
I am glad for that as it is always a gong show over at the park for two weeks.
If you have more pictures you want to put up feel free Vicki.

It was a great season. :clap:

:ty: all

:bye 1: :grhug:

Hi everyone

Has anyone seen the Eagles yet this year? I talked to one of the workers at the PNE and he said he saw one near the Japanese garden last week. It has been a challenge to help these eagles and I got a big fat no from the city to rebuild the nest. We have another meeting with the parks board coming up, there have been a few changes with the election so we will see.

No Diana, I haven't seen them yet. I'm there sometimes after work at 7pm and occasionally on the weekend looking for them, but unfortunately they're difficult to spot before egg-laying time. It's too dark after work now, but will drop by again on the weekend. Too bad about the challenge and good luck with it. If successful, it may be a good idea to add some of the fallen-nest material from below onto the platform, in case they want to reuse it.

I watched the parent eagle spend a lot of time breaking off a branch from the pond-tree last year, then flying it over to repair the nest. The branch breaking was quite a process and with dive-bombing crows too. The eagles spend a lot of time breaking off the branches from the pond trees and it's a shame that their hard work falls apart each year. Unfortunately, they won't pick up the fallen-nest ground branches for repairs - with so many people, dogs and cars going by.

I saw one bald eagle today, Sunday, Nov 11, 11:30am. I will refer to him/her as parent eagle.
He was on top of last year's nest tree. There were about 50 crows flying around creating lots of noise when he flew over.

Hi everyone :wave:

Thank you Vicky for the picture of a Hastings Parent.
It is hard to get a picture of them when they don't have a nest. :clap:

I have seen them flying around the park for about 3 weeks now.
Since I have not seen them in one of their trees, I could not prove it though. :dunno:
.... so now we do have the prove. :mihihi:

Dear Diana
I am so sorry the city gave you and therefore us a big, fat no
after all the loops you had to jump through.
I see you are not giving up. :huggie:
We ground observers will keep a close eyes on the Hastings eagle pair again, that's for sure. :grhug:

Out shopping just now on Hastings St. and something caught my eye :chin:

After shopping I went down to get a closer look and what I discovered is that the Hastings pair is building a new nest higher up in the same original cottonwood tree they used just off the parking lot. Its in the next branch joint up from the old nest location that came down in the wind storm years back.

It appears they're off to good start and I wish them luck on this choice of the new nest location for the upcoming season :yes: :luck:

:woohoo: That’s great news ... that’s where we wanted the city to let us put the artificial nest. It would be fantastic to see them do well this year.

:wave: Hi everyone

Yesterday was a busy day again for the Hastings eagles.
Both eagles were working on the nest in the rainy afternoon.
The nest is getting bigger and bigger.
I hope this time the nest will last. :luck:
I have seen a video of one of the Hastings eagle getting a branch from a tree where Canuck lives and flying back with it in the direction of the Hastings parking lot.
That is the second time I have seen them getting branches from further away. :rh: :rh:

:wave:

Stan and I went by the nest just before sunset at about 4:45 pm.
Ma was working in the nest and we saw Pa flying in with a branch.
He then found a place for it and sat himself on a branch right over the nest
looking at his handiwork for a few minutes. :thumlft:
After that he flew over to the park and we lost sight of him.
Ma stayed behind. She looked pleased and was working steadily. :yes:
The nest looks great and so does the Hastings pair with their new shiny feathers. :eag: :eag:
I will try to get a picture taken on the weekend. :vid:

:bye 1:

Wow, your Hastings couple has certainly built a big nest in their new spot. I hope it is secure and that the branches stay solid for them! I was looking in the evergreen trees last time driving down Hastings. Now I shall change the direction of my nest spotting. :Cool:

Hello everyone, (aka sctth4] been watching some pretty sloppy shift changes. My view is about 60% of what it was but still not bad.
