Hi Jean and all friends of these eagles.


Thank you for taking a look over here.
I don't think the Hastings eagles have a lot of choice over here.
You have been watching all kinds of eagle nests.
Have you seen other nest that were build on only two supporting branches?

I like to extend that question to all Hastings eagle friends.

Thank You

Hi Annemie..... Hummingbirds do ...but they are so tiny and the nest is well reinforced all around with spider webs and it is safe.I have never seen Eagles or Osprey do it.

Oh my, it is sad to see how potentially unstable this new nest appears. I'll have to check out the nests we follow here Annemie to see if any are on only 2 supporting branches. I don't recall any looking as precarious at this one does. fingers crossed

Hi IrishEyes and Stim

Thank you for your input.

Those Hummingbirds look so beautiful IrishEyes. Thank You

We have one Hummingbird coming every day to our feeder lately.
We put the feeder up a few month ago and it took a long time for the Humming bird to feel safe here.
Now the Humming bird feels so at home here, we see it cruising about daily. love
It would be nice if it would find a partner.

Sandra, yes it would be nice if you took a look at the nests that you are following, thank you for offering.

hug

YW Annemie..... and did you know that Female hummingbirds do not let male hummingbirds near a nest because the male hummingbird's bright colors might alert predators in the nest area..male hummingbirds will also attack a female hummingbird that enters his territory that he has not mated with...after the female mates with him, she will be allowed to roam his territory without too much worry..

Thank you for the reports, Annemie and Stan - and it does look a bit scary - but may work if the weather is kind. We don't have as many eagle nests here, but lots of osprey nests, and some on the cross piece of power poles that have stayed there and been successful for a number of years. This is an image from Google that's similar to one of our local nests - and I worry about it, but it seems to work.



I'll try to take pictures of the two local nests that are sort of like this, but it may be a few days before I do that.

Hi JudyB

Thank you so much for your post. Thank You

That nest on the power line looks very very scary.
Those osprey are living dangerously indeed.

I am looking forward to your pictures but please take your time with it.
I know how busy you are.

Have a good night Judy. I hope to see you tomorrow on the Lafarge site.
Big hugs
