Friends of these Eagles, wave
Well with all the excitement going on thanks Scott, Heather, Jason Very Happy I just had to get out and see. When I arrived one of the adults was perched on the tree branch South of what looks like might be the new nest although I am a little surprised they did not build in the same crop of tree limbs. Instead it looks like they have moved a little higher up but still in there old original tree. I didnít realise until I was leaving that the mate was perched in the evergreens across the street were they had last seasons nest, I circled around and parked by the community center but they had moved to the back side of the trees and all I could see was the crows dive bombing him/her.

Hi ConfusionCircle, UrbanEagle, Stim, Gemini, Karen, Scott, Shrub and all.

I found out through Scott (thank you Scott), that the Hastings eagles are back and that they are trying to rebuild.
Stan and I took an immediate drive down to the parking lot.
We saw one of the eagles just leaving the area to fly south-east.

I was very exited till I saw the beginnings of the new nest.
To me it does not look very secure at all .
The Hastings Eagles are doing the same thing now, then they did across the street.
They seem to bring in tiny branches.

I knew last year that their nest would not hold even though it did look impressive.
Now I fear that the nest they are building now will not work either.
I already don't like the spot in the tree they have chosen.
The tree is old and falling apart.
Every time I go there I see branches on the ground from that very tree.

Every time I come here after a storm I see this.

The first picture is of a broken branch still attached to the tree.

It looks like our Hastings eagles might have added a few more sticks to the nest.
Another big branch broke off the tree and fell unto the nest. sigh sign

I made these pictures on the 14th of Dec.

In the first picture you can see where the old nest was. It was to the immediate right of the new nest.
To me that spot appears much better than the new spot because it has 4 supporting branches instead of only two.

3;26pm............It looks like this pair is determined to stay very close to this location, just don't want to move over to find another tree. I wish them luck this year.


Volunteers do not necessarily have the time;............they have the heart..........Elizabeth Andrew
