Wow, Carole, thanks for the reminder. I just checked my calendar and I see that exactly 1 year ago today the six goslings left the nest and followed Bonnie and Clyde into the lake. So it will be interesting to see the further developments from the nest this year. It does not sound to me as if there are going to be offspring though if the geese are spending that much time out of the nest.

Aw memories. I remember now how well Bonnie would cover her eggs with down before leaving the nest. She was able to get her rest and sleep on the nest. They created such a good learning experience for us all.

Well here we are another year later and I'm happy to report that Bonnie and Clyde are once again in the eagle nest that they took over after Jack and Jill moved across the road. David Hancock got a picture of her in the nest but I didn't get a photo because I didn't have a good zoom cam with me that day.

Karen thank you for letting us know! This is a wonderful update.

Yes, Sandra, they did. Just wish we still had the cam on this nest.

I just got a call from the property owner at the Mission nest. As you know the geese Bonnie and Clyde raised goslings in the eagle nest again this year. However the goslings did not leave the nest shortly after hatching as they would normally be expected to do. They were older and heavier when the goslings actually leaped to the ground. This caused one of them to die upon impact leaving four goslings. Then the resident cat caught one. So at this point there are only three remaining goslings swimming around with Bonnie and Clyde this year.

However there are other new developments as well. Another goose came into the nest once it became vacant and tried to nest there but Jack and Jill (remember the resident eagles who moved their nest across the road?) kept harassing the geese until this second pair of geese gave up.

Now Jack and Jill are back in their original nest everyday bringing in sticks. While we were on the phone the eagles were in and out several times. It sounds as if they do not have eaglets in their alternate nest on the other side of the road this year. They seem to be planning to reclaim their nest.

wave Karen. Thank you for the update on the Mission nest.
This was a delightful nest to watch with Bonnie & Clyde. I miss having a cam here. It was wonderful to zoom the cam to see all the spectacular scenery & wildlife.
Interesting dynamics with the second set of geese & Jack & Jill.
I'll bet the owners would like to have the eagles back on the nest.

wave Hi Karen! wave Hi Carole! It's like old times to be back here.
Thank you for your report Karen, even though the youngsters didn't fare as well this year. Interesting there was a try at late nesting by another Canada goose couple. And how interesting to hear that Jack and Jill are reclaiming their nest! Sitting eagleSitting eagle
