Hi everyone! :)

One eagle on a north east branch just near the nest at 11.30 AM. Another was on the top rail of the AN as spotted earlier in my morning walk.

Oh something of note....

The house and property that the Pandora nest tree sits in is for sale. Quite a big back lot. Is the nest safe from developers? :chin: I hope it's protected {which I believe is the law}. Those who know can post a clear answer :hlp:

Steamer there are lots of rules regarding an eagle nest but perhaps someone else can post about it here.

That house did sell quickly!

Thanks for the input Marg and Karen :ty: At this point in time the house is empty so hopefully we'll discover soon who the new landlords of the Pandora eagles will be :luck:

As for the eagles....one on the nest at 10.05 AM and the other on the top rail of the AN at 10.15 AM during my morning walk.

Thanks for the report, Steamer! Any chance they're sitting on an egg now? It was around this time last year we became suspicious of eggs having been laid! :luck:

I don't think they've quite "settled in" but after what I saw today they may be getting closer :chin:

I'll be keeping my eyes out to see if they spend more time at the nest during my daily visits :yes:

Saw one on the rail of the AN this morning but nobody at the Pandora nest tree. Pretty positive no egg yet folks.

Hi Everyone,
Well Steamer I think you are probably right about the egg situation - I have been home all day and can happily report that someone has been in the nest quite a bit today and right now I can see a white head in there again. So hopefully any day now someone will be in there full time.

I think we're getting close Christine :yes:

Lots of activity at the nest today. First a loud greeting call at 10.30 AM. Saw one fly in well the other {the greeter} was already on the nest. Both on the nest for some loud talk as I carried on my walk.

Later at 12.15 PM more loud eagle chatter. As I got closer I could see one perched just to the side of the nest. Couldn't see the other but might have been low in the bowl. A few minutes later the one off to the side made a beeline towards Lafarge.

Yes someone has been in the nest a lot today. This morning I could see a white head in there until about 12noon when I had to leave for work. Also, Pa went to the old community garden lot this morning and picked up another dead plant and brought it back to Lady in the nest. At first I thought he was going to pick the daffodils growing in there - but no - he got the old dead plant instead - haha!

Good morning everyone,
An eagle has been in the nest bowl all morning since I got up at 7:30 and checked. I'll keep an eye on things today - fingers crossed (talons crossed - haha)

If I remember correctly, it was March 28 last year when we decided there was an egg! :luck: I hope we get our cam back so we can see if they appear together on the AN separately or not!

:announce:
Stan and I am pretty sure we have an egg in the nest.
We saw what looked like extensive egg rolling going on. :love:
When we first arrived around 2:30 pm both eagles were there, one was sitting in the nest and the other one at the rim of the nest.
Then one eagle flew away.


In the first picture eagle is sitting in the nest on eggs. :woohoo:

On the 2nd picture eagle is doing an eggroll. :hooray:

I saw a white head on the Pandora nest from the top of the hill at 10 AM. As I got to my usual viewing spot lower down it vanished from sight :poof:

Good morning, everyone - and thanks for posting the date, nightowl!

I'm afraid I have bad news about the Lafarge cam - Ken was able to get to Lafarge last week and worked with their folks checking out all parts of the system - and the camera is dead. I know we've had a wide angle/area cam at Lafarge since 2010 - and I think this may be the same cam. And saying "we've had a cam" is actually not quite accurate - Lafarge installed the cam as part of their security system - and allowed us to use it to watch the eagles that nested on their site.

I think I heard that they had the cam streaming in the employee break room - and I know Lafarge is proud to be supporting wildlife, as shown by their asking David Hancock to build the artificial nest as the original nest tree became less stable - so I am hoping that they will install a new camera and let us operate it. Ken said that the people he spoke with there also hoped that would be possible - but it is a corporation, so they need to go through the appropriate channels.

I'll post more as I learn more - please keep your fingers crossed.
