Happy Thanksgiving to all of our American HWF members!

Roger shared some photos with us on Monday & reported that L & S have been very busy on their new nest(old re-tailed hawk's nest) down at Riverview!

I'm hoping that when they get the nest ready, they might start spending some more time down in the northern end of their territory at Turtle Bay!

I was up at the Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival last weekend with David Hancock & all of my HWF friends! What a wonderful time filled with good friends, great weather & lots & lots of eagles!!!

I returned to Redding on Monday night & was up & at 'em bright & early on Tuesday to look for our beloved eagles! I was so excited when I spotted an eagle on top of Redwood Roost which is across from the Christmas Tree! I found the eagles in this tree a few times last season too!

Spirit took off and headed south after a bit, but it was sure a nice welcome home to see him up there!

Hi Marg & Phil!

Yes Marg it was such a wonderful weekend! The weather couldn't have been better & seeing you & all of my HWF friends was icing on the cake! :huggie:


Good news on the weather & wildfires down here! We have been getting rain all day yesterday & today! My sister measured 4 inches at her house already! So, I think that should be it for the wildfires in our area for the year! Phew, that was a tough year :(

Fall
Fund/Activity Drive
Update
First - big thanks to all those who have donated! We've raised $3777 so far this month, including 14 new nest adoptions and 2 new monthly donors, so we now have more than a dozen people donating towards our monthly expenses!

As some of us were discussing our needs, we realized that we may not have done as good a job as we might at letting those who enjoy the forum know what we need to make this an active, growing hub for information about eagles and other wildlife.

We definitely need your financial support. The response to this drive has been wonderful, and will help with the bills that pile up - and it would be wonderful if we could double our monthly donations. We need to pay every month for the server space where our website and this forum is located, for the internet service to connect some of the cams to the web, for the high-speed internet service to send the signals from the cams to YouTube so everyone can see them, and a few other similar expenses that I'm forgetting at the moment. We currently get about $250/month from our monthly donor program - and thank you so much to those of you who support us this way! And it would be great if another 20 or 30 people who enjoy posting on the forum or just reading about the eagles could join the program and make a monthly donation of $10 or $20 or whatever works. It's easy to do with CanadaHelps - just go to our Donations page (click here), click the Donate via CanadaHelps Now! link, click on Donate Monthly, enter an amount (they suggest $25, but that's just a suggestion - the amount you enter is the amount you'll give), leave a message if you'd like, and fill in your contact and payment information. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me ([email protected]) or gemini ([email protected]).

But financial support is not all we need. We're calling this a Fund/Activity Drive because we really need those of you who enjoy what we're doing here to get more involved. What we need most of all is more people to watch our cameras and post observations. If you look at the threads for our primary nests (Delta 2, Harrison Mills, Surrey Reserve and White Rock), you'll see that most of the posts on each thread are by the same 3 or 4 people. And they would love some help!

This is also a good time to add more zoomers. If you're interested, the first step is to pick one or two of our nests and start posting observations and learning a bit about the territory and the eagles by where the zoomers go to look for eagles. Once you're comfortable posting, let me or one of the zoomers at your chosen nest know you're interested in zooming, and we can go from there. :)

We don't expect people posting to know all about the eagles initially - I've been watching cams since 2006, and I'm having trouble telling the male and female apart at our new Surrey Reserve nest unless I can see the tiny mark on the male's tale or the tuft of feathers on the female's head - but I know as I watch them more, I'll learn more about how they move or where their favorite place to perch is - and it will be easier. It's perfectly fine to say "an adult came in at 9:03 am and moved some sticks" - and often one of the folks who have been watching longer can look back using the dvr feature on our cams and see which one it is - and we're all happy to share the clues we used to recognize the adult.

You don't need to watch constantly, or commit to watching at a certain time - just whenever you happen to be watching, post what you see. Or didn't see - a post like "I was watching the North cam from 10:30 to 11:00 and did not see any activity on the nest" is actually very helpful as we learn when the eagles are most likely to visit at this time of year.

If you have questions about posting observations, please feel free to contact me or any of the Topic Assistants who post on the thread you're interested in.

You can click here to go to our donations page - and remember that the amounts listed under various projects like Eagle Cam Repairs and Monthly Support are suggestions - you pick the amount you give. Thank you.

If you have questions, please contact me ([email protected]) or gemini ([email protected]).

Thank you again to all who have donated or are donating time or money - we could not do this without your donations and without your observations, screenshots, videos, and hours spent zooming.

Thank you JudyB for that great information about donating & assisting HWF!

I am a Monthly Donor & it is my way of saying thank you to HWF for providing this wonderful Discussion Forum for us here in Redding, California since 2007! We have all enjoyed the opportunity to learn, laugh, cry & share our love of eagles with each other!

I am excited to report that we had 2 more visits from our lovely Redding Eagles this past weekend!

Sue reported seeing both Liberty & Spirit on the Christmas Tree on Friday morning! I raced down there & found Miss Liberty on the Family Tree!
She looked so pretty up there against the yellow leaves of the cottonwood tree...

I was so happy to see Liberty on the Family Tree for the very first time this Nesting Season!!! Roger said they have been very busy on enlarging the old red-tailed hawk's nest at Riverview so they haven't been spending much time in the northern end of their territory so far! I'm just hoping that they are at a point now where they feel the nest is ready & they can spend more time in the Turtle Bay area!

One more of the lovely Liberty preening on the Family Tree.

Another photographer that I met near the Family Tree told me that there were 2 adult eagles & a young eagle on the Family Tree about half an hour before I arrived!

Sue also spotted a young eagle flying in the area near the Nest Tree that morning!

The next morning, I spotted Miss Liberty up on the Christmas Tree as I drove in for my daily bike ride!

She was up there for about 45 minutes...

Liberty flew low over the river & I lost sight of her for a bit! I looked over in Bluff Branch area & Liberty's Island but couldn't see her anywhere?

Finally, I spotted her over on Dead Tree & it looked like she had caught some kind of prey! It also looked like another bird was pestering her so just as I started to head in that direction, Liberty flew south back over the 44 Bridge with her "catch of the day" in tow...

It looked like Liberty caught a nice, big trout from the river! It was so good to see that she is finding plenty of food!

Phil~I'm so sorry that I didn't see your earlier posts about the Fires here in our area! Yes, this fire was not as close as the one we had here in July! But, it was such a large wildfire that caused so much destruction & loss of life... It's very sad & has affected so many people & so much wildlife :(

Thank you so much for your concern, it has finally started RAINING here so I think we are out of danger for a while now! :luck:

On a positive note, I found BOTH Liberty & Spirit on top of the Christmas Tree this morning!!! What a wonderful sight that was! And, the lighting was fantastic so I was able to get some nice shots of our lovely Redding eagle pair!

It was just such a glorious sight to see our lovebirds up there on one of their favorite trees!

Liberty took off & headed south after about an hour up there, and Spirit was right behind her! I didn't get any lift off shots since they headed in the opposite direction from where I was standing, but I was just so happy to see them! :D :D :D

I have great news for those of you who enjoy watching my videos of our eagles! We finally switched our Internet Provider & now I have super fast speed so my videos upload very quickly!!! It used to take many, many hours, or even days for a short 2-3 minute video to upload! So I haven't been taking as many videos these past few years for that very reason!

Here is a real short one that I took today of our eagles on top of the Christmas Tree! I just missed the singing between these two!
It's also a bit shaky, sorry about that I didn't have my camera on my tripod!

Roger reported that Liberty & Spirit are still busily bringing in sticks & soft material to their new nest down at Riverview!

The sightings at Turtle Bay have been few & far between lately, but Roger sent us some photos that he took recently...

Hi Phil!

So glad you enjoyed the recent photos of our beautiful Redding Eagles!

Well, I gave it my best shot this morning! I was heading down to Riverview at 7:45 when I got a text from Sue that she saw 2 big birds on the Christmas Tree! So, I took a quick detour and headed down to check that out!

When I drove by, I saw 2 big birds but didn't get a real good look at them since they were preening. I grabbed my bike and raced down the 44 Trail, hoping to see Liberty & Spirit on top of the Christmas Tree!

But, when I got down there, I realized that there were 2 Turkey Vultures on top of the Christmas Tree, not L & S!!! :mihihi:

So, I raced back down to Riverview & walked all the way down to the 5th Fairway! Roger said he had seen 1 of the eagles in the nest a little earlier.
But, when I got down there, there were no eagles anywhere?!?

I walked around & checked out some of their favorite spots along the river & on the golf course, but no luck!

So, I packed up & headed back to Turtle Bay & took another spin around that area. Still no eagles anywhere?

Well, it was a lovely day & despite not seeing our beloved eagles anywhere, I still enjoyed being out there!

Roger messaged me a little bit ago & said they both showed up down there shortly after I left! Of course they did!!! :mihihi:

He said Liberty didn't stay too long, but he was able to get a lovely close up shot of Spirit for us!
