Bluebird1;
All the major "clean-looking" poles around the nest are new. And the climber first screwed (I believe) a platform into place under the nest and cranked it up to provide a base, then drove several long (metal?) pins/beams into the trunk just below the nest.

So it has the basics required even if all the sticks and twigs were washed away in a storm. All eagles really require is the surrounding structure, AFAIK.

wave Hi Everyone,

All the work the tree climber did is still there. The hole on the upper left of the nest was already there; the wind just made it larger.Oh My

As you state JudySmile, he did have a mobility problem. I think Karen did mention his name in an email but I can't remember. I'll check as soon as I can for you.

I watched the entire operation and at times it was difficult to figure what he was doing but I did see him
power screwing metal braces below the nest. I also observed him pushing up on the nest and trying to
slide what I thought were more poles underneath. As MarySmile says, a look back at the captures
might answer some of our questions.

I have fingers crossed that WR pair will accept and build up the nest, but we will just have to wait and see.

HI Bonnie,Smile I miss them too!
There are a lot of eagles around during the season but don't know whether this pair has been around recently.
(Did you get my email?)

See all later........

Thanks, Mary, Brian and Annie, for answering my question. hug

Glad that you saw the lower poles being inserted. I was there as you know, Annie, and saw how hard the fellow worked but I found it difficult to see what was going on when he was working lower down. Like you say, Annie, fingers crossed and wait and see!! (And I meant to say grid, not grill, I was overdue for lunch, I guess).LOL

Hello everyone,
Last weekend I walked the beach near the nest and did not see any eagles, however today we went for a drive and our resident eagle has returned to the "eagle tree" near the pier in White Rock which is about 4 miles from the nest we watch.

Thanks for the eagle report, Gail! We weren't watching until mid-October last year, so don't really know when they usually return.

Weekly picture of the nest, so we'll have a basis for comparison. Really lovely in the morning light!
