:eag: 4:45am - Ch'aak' & Anaaski continue to sleep next to...
1 of the 3 plastic bags that Mama delivered to the nest yesterday evening. (red dot = bag)
71919 445a ees bag.JPG
(Fridays are garbage pick-up days for the areas surrounding the nest tree area. Glacier Gardens has reported that
sometimes bears knock over trash cans and the eagles scavenge what they can from those trash can opportunities.)


:wave: I will be away from where I can check in on the nest until this afternoon.
Please share any s'caps that you might capture with us! We'd love to see them! :thumlft: Thanks, Journi

Journi thanks so much for your dedication to watching these eagles and for all your wonderful s'caps. I love the ones of the eaglets huddling together. There doesn't seem to be much bonking anymore :woohoo:

I tried to upload this video last night of Mama bringing the plastic bags to the nest but was having problems with my computer. Had to refresh Firefox then had to go back and reset my own preferences :%:

Journi, where do you find the date and time stamp for this nest? I notice your s’caps don’t show one yet you have a time listed. I’m not seeing one when viewing on my ipad or iphone.

Hi Marianne,

I asked Tina at the Glacier Gardens last year if they would provide a date stamp and their answer was no, because it would distract the visitors who were viewing the nest on the screen at the gardens. Same with sound. Maybe they will change their minds for next season! It does make it difficult to try to figure out what time it is at the nest. I am on the west coast of BC and we are in the same time zone as Juneau, but we do go to Daylight Savings Time in the summer so we are an hour ahead of Juneau time right now.
