Post by heatherj » Fri Oct 25, 2019 5:23 pm

Welcome to the Henderson Nest thread for the 2019/2020 Season.

If you visit the Henderson nest in Roberts Creek you are welcome to post comments and pictures here.

This nest was new to the forum in May 2016 though it has been active for several seasons before that. The nest is on private property but can be viewed from the beach. To view the nest, walk on to the beach from the Henderson & Beach Ave pull-out. Nest is visible to the west over 2nd house on the tree with severely broken top
  • 2015/16 - 1 eaglet Henderson, fledged on or before July 7
  • 2016/17 - 2 eaglets seen. 1 successful fledge on or before July 14. Sadly 1 eaglet was lost sometime in June. It may have been a fall from the nest or predation
  • 2017/18 - Adults seen in and around the nest but no evidence of any eaglets.
  • 2018/19 - One eaglet seen wingercising in nest on Aug 1. Fledge date unknown
  • 2019/20 - :luck: :luck:
