Thank you so much Phil!!! :huggie:

Here is a video that I took of Liberty & Spirit on the Christmas Tree yesterday morning!

I recommend that you turn down your volume because it is very noisy on the Highway 44 Bridge!

Thank you for that great info JudyB! :thumlft: :thumlft:

I hope you guys have been able to work out all of the kinks in the system!
Thanks for all you do to keep our forum & all HWF forums up & running!!! :woohoo:

Sorry I have been so out of touch for a bit! I have had some eagle sightings over the past few weeks & just haven't posted them here!

I had one of those Magical Days on Saturday January 26th where everything lined up just perfectly!!!! The lighting was fantastic & both Liberty & Spirit made an appearance on the Christmas Tree & down on a gravel bar by the River!!!!

Liberty was up there by herself when I first arrived around 9:30 am...

Hi Phil!!! So glad you enjoyed the videos! Yes we do have a wonderful eagle family here alright!!! :love:

I went down to Riverview to check on our eagles a few Mondays ago because the Golf Course has hired a new Company to take over the Grounds. Rick the Supervisor I went through to gain access on the Course on Mondays is no longer working there. Roger let me know & advised I come down just in case the New Managers weren't as eagle friendly!

Here are some photos of their new Nest Tree & nest. I have to say I don't have a great feeling about this new nest because it is in another Gray Pine Tree & that is the same type of tree their nest was in last year when a branch broke off & it fell to the ground with River & Sky in it!


Sorry but it won't allow me to upload any photos here? I will talk to JudyB & see what's going on?
Here is the error code I am getting? I've never seen this one before?

Redding Eagle Update:

I have some upsetting news to share with you today...

I checked on our Redding Eagles this morning at Riverview Golf Course & it appears that our Miss Liberty has taken on a new mate. I wish I had answers for you, but I just don't know what has happened to her beautiful mate Mr. Spirit?!?

What I can tell you is that I believe she is currently with the same sub adult eagle that I saw sitting in the same tree with Liberty a few Mondays ago at Riverview! I also believe this was the same eagle that was with her when I was doing the Bird Walk with the kids a few Fridays ago & we saw it over on a tall, skinny Cypress Tree next to the Christmas Tree where Liberty was perched. I have never seen Spirit, or any of our eagles land on that particular tree, so I've been wondering about this for a few weeks now?

I didn't have my camera with me that day and I never really got a clear look at that eagle that day because he landed behind some branches. He flew over & mated with Liberty on Dead Tree so without seeing it well, it seemed like it must have been Spirit?!? Liberty wouldn't mate with another eagle, right?!?

Well, this morning I saw Liberty & this new sub adult eagle in the nest together & then mating on nearby trees twice while I was there! So, that indicates that Liberty has accepted this new male as her mate?

Now, as with Patriot, it is possible that Spirit was run off by this sub adult male & is not able to reclaim his nesting territory or his mate due to illness or lack of strength? It is also a possibility that he has died somehow, but there have been no reports of a dead adult eagle found in the area? (There is always a chance in the wild that the body might not be seen or recovered :(

I keep telling myself that after following these eagles for so many years that we all know in our minds that this stuff can happen & that this is just nature & we have absolutely no control over it...

But, as we experienced with the loss of Patriot in 2013 & Solo in 2017, knowing that in our minds does not lessen the feelings that we have for our Redding Eagles in our hearts...

I will keep you posted on anything I find out about Spirit...
~Terri

:ohmy: What a sad news, Terri, :huggie:
is it recent ? as you say in february 05 that Spririt joined Liberty as she called to him.
i'm not a specialist but for me it's true if Spirit is around, liberty won't mate with a new one
Another question is it Liberty ?

Another thing i read before about another nest,
viewtopic.php?f=44&t=341
Last season at Big Bear nest,
Mrs and Mr BB had two eaglets
3/23/18: One of chicks (Baby Big Bear) died overnight, most likely of hypothermia resulting from soaking rains followed by near freezing temperatures.
3/28/18: Stormy was banded and dead chick was removed from nest.
The second one fledged and leave the nest area to another part of the Lake, i was said after Mrs BB was seen with a subadult, that Mr BB (may be traumatised by the death of the first eaglet and/or the banding process, human presence in his nest ...) left also the area and was seen at the other part of the lake with his son Stormy. Now Mrs BB and Shadow the sub adult are still together at the nest...

another question, what about the reaction of Spirit and the big fires you had in the area last summer ?

with you for the best Terri :huggie: and :luck:

Thank you Phil, it has happened very recently so I'm still processing this...

The last time I saw Spirit was on January 26th and those photos I posted with him & Liberty on the Christmas Tree were from that date. I wasn't able to post them until Feb. 5th so that made it confusing! So sorry!

I'm still not able to post my photos here JudyB? I'm getting that same error message & I did delete my cookies & logged in again?

Thanks so much jwin, I'll give that a try!

I got word from Roger this morning that Liberty & her new mate's nest came down in the record-breaking snowstorm we had here in Redding on Tuesday night! We got 7 inches of snow at my house, but some areas of Redding received up to a foot of snow! The snow here in our area is very wet & heavy, so we tend to lose a lot of trees(especially ones that don't lose their leaves like Live Oaks). Sadly, the weight of this much wet, heavy snow on Liberty's nest was too much & it fell to the ground... :(

Roger wasn't working yesterday or today but he got word from one of the other workers who saw the nest on the fairway this morning. Charles did report that 2 adult eagles were in the area & seemed fine! So, that was good news!!! :thumlft:

Roger might go in tomorrow so he will try to get some photos for us! I going to see if I can go down there to check things out if the golf course is still closed tomorrow due to all of the tree damage from the snowstorm! I will let you know what I see!

I will also be keeping a close eye on their old nest at Turtle Bay because Liberty is due to lay egg(s) any day now so there isn't much time to start building a new nest from scratch!

Please keep our Redding Eagles in your thoughts as they endure this latest challenge!
Thank you HWF Family! :hug:

Thank you Phil for your help with this issue!

I went down to check on Liberty & her new mate at Riverview this morning! The Golf Course is still closed after we received 10-12 inches of snow in some parts of Redding this week!

There were so many downed trees & fallen branches at the golf course! It looked like a tornado went through there! :(

When I first got down there, I spotted Liberty! She looked big like she was carrying egg(s)!

Then, I realized that she was sitting in her Nest Tree right next to where her nest was! :( It just broke my heart in two to see her up there trying to figure out what had happened to her nest?!?

Anyway, she wasn't sad about it, but for some reason it really got to me & I started tearing up a bit. It's just been an emotional week here with Spirit's disappearance & then the nest falling down!

Here is the video & I apologize for the sobbing in the beginning...

It appears that the pictures have to be less than 3000 pixels wide or they won't post - we haven't found why yet, because that's not how we have things set up to work - but it seems to be at least part of what's happening.

A thought for a way around this until we get it fixed - I know you post many of your pictures on Facebook - I think Facebook saves the images in a smaller size than what you upload, so if you download the images from Facebook, you may be able to attach those smaller versions of the pictures here. Or if you have a photo editing program, if you can make sure the pictures are less than 3000 pixels wide and less than 4 MB, they should work (though we've had a couple of test pictures that didn't - it's a very annoying little bug :banghead: )



On another topic, is it going to be possible to get one of the cameras on the old nest turned on? Or are they on and we don't have the current link posted? Thanks!

Thanks so much JudyB! I think that might work using the ones I put on facebook! :thumlft:

Unfortunately Turtle Bay opted out of being involved with the Eaglecam so it has been disconnected... We really didn't know where they were going to nest this year & assumed they would return to Riverview so we couldn't invest too much $ into the Project with so many unknowns!

Here is Liberty sitting in the Nest Tree where her nest should be...

Here is the remains of the Nest Tree & you can see all of the snow on the ground! It rarely snows in Redding & if it does it usually doesn't stick for too long!

Yup that worked Judyb!!!!

Here are some shots of Liberty with her new mate at Riverview. We have decided to wait a bit before holding a Naming Contest for this new male because we are still upset about the disappearance of our dear Spirit... It appears that Liberty has accepted this male as her new mate so we will get on board with her soon. Just need a little time to wrap our brains around all of this & mourn our loss of Spirit if he is truly gone...

Hi Everyone!

Well I have some wonderful news to report!!!

Liberty & her new mate have returned to the Turtle Bay Nest!!! (Yes Phil, this is the same nest where Solo was raised, but Lib lost her first clutch of eggs that year & didn't lay her 2nd clutch until late March! So, poor Solo was in there through the very hot month of June, when normally the eaglets fledge in the 1st week of June & can go to the water to cool off!)

I went to Riverview in morning & then drove all over town looking for them yesterday with no luck? Butt, then I took one more drive by the TB nest at 5:15 & saw both eagles there!!!!!

I ran down the trail & took some pics & videos before it got dark!

What an emotional rollercoaster we have been on this past week! Spirit suddenly disappears? A snowstorm in Redding drops 8-14 inches in town? The Riverview nest falls down? Liberty has accepted a new mate? What a whirlwind week!!!

Sadly this wonderful moment of Liberty returning to her old nest at Turtle Bay is bittersweet due to the sudden disappearance of our sweet Spirit :( We haven't given up on you Mr. Spirit! :brknhrt:

But, I can't tell you how happy it made me to see our lovely Miss Liberty hunkered down in her old nest at Turtle Bay!!!

Be still my heart! :rh:

Sorry I have been a bit out of touch lately folks!

Our Redding Eagles have been keeping me busy these last few weeks!

They worked on the Turtle Bay Nest for about a week & then we got some heavy rain & winds here for several days & I haven't seen them bring in a stick in a while now?

Sadly, our dear Spirit is still missing? I have not seen him since January 26th?!?

I would think that if he were alive he would be trying to be back with his mate of 6 years, Miss Liberty & regain his territory?!?

The unknown is making it tough to deal with :cry1:

In the past when we lost one of our beloved eagles, we knew exactly what happened to them & we were even able to recover their bodies...

So, it is hard to mourn & move on when we just don't know one way or another if he is still alive or not?

Liberty is still bonding with New Mate & spending time along the river in the Turtle Bay area. New Mate can often be seen perched above or near the Turtle Bay Nest, while Liberty is seen most often on top of the Christmas Tree!

A few more looks at "New Mate", we are going to have a Naming Contest soon so we can find a fitting name for him! We just need a minute to process all of this & then we will move on just as Miss Liberty has been able to do! It's all about hormones & reproduction!

In 2017 when Liberty & Spirit's nest fell down at Riverview Golf Course, she was able to lay a 2nd clutch at the Turtle Bay nest.
She didn't lay those eggs until the middle of March, and only one of those eggs hatched. That was our dear Solo who ended up dying from extreme dehydration on June 26th after a week of extremely high temps 110+ Farenheit for a week straight!

So, at this point, we don't know if Liberty will lay a 2nd clutch this season? With Spirit gone & Liberty bonding with a New Mate, that makes the possibility a little slimmer I would think? I guess their cycles have to be in sync with each other to make that happen, and we just don't know where they are at in their cycles right now?

They were seen mating on several occasions before the 1st clutch was laid, but I haven't seen them mating these past few weeks?
I also haven't seen them doing Nestorations lately?

What I have seen is a lot of trilling & a lot of flying & chasing each other in the sky! Definitely pair bonding activities!
