Great to see you and Stuart again Heather! Your Hastings pair has been busy with obvious intent that this is it, their intended nest. We hope right along with you all that fledging success will be enjoyed by all this year. fingers crossed

Hi Shrub and Stuart, Stim, Urban Eagle, Gemini, Karen, Stan, Sunshinecoast and all. wave

It was nice meeting up with you Shrub as well as with you Stuart last weekend in the afternoon.
What a lovely day it was. To bad that the Stars Sitting eagle Sitting eagle of the party did not show.
Oh well we still had a lovely day.
Thanks for putting up the pictures of the nest you made Shrub.
I am glad that you are optimistic about the new nest.

Today the 9th of Jan., a week later, Stan and I drove by the Hastings nest again.
Ma Hastings was sitting in a tree next to the nest tree. It was about 4:17 pm.
She looked good.
We cut 5 sucker shoot branches for the Hastings pair, each branch 1 meter in length and 2 cm wide.
I called up to Ma, she knows my call, and she watched me carefully. I showed her the sticks and put them in the lower field.
David gave me that idea last year when he saw the nest on the ground.

Hi Annemie, enjoyed your report what a good idea showing the eagles the sticks you'd placed in the field! I'll have to remember that.Grin Glad you saw Ma Hastings. I may not post often but I've followed the Hastings nest from the beginning. wave

Annemie I love that Ma Hastings saw you place the sticks on the ground for them to use. I certainly hope they do make use of them! Well done!

Hi Shrub and Stuart, Sunshinecoast, Stim, Urban Eagle, IrishEyes, JudyB, Jason, Scott, Gemini, Karen, and everyone.

It is nice to see you here Sunshinecoast and Stim and yes, when Stan and I went to the Hastings nest on Sunday evening around 4:10 pm
I noticed that two of the 5 sticks we cut for the eagles were gone.
I hope that the eagles took them and not some ones dog.

If you like to do that for your eagles Sunshine Coast that would be great I am sure.
Like I have mentioned in my last post, the sticks should be one meter long and two cm wide if you want a perfect branch according to David.
I think where you live the eagles should have no problems finding sticks though.
It is only where the Hastings eagles are living, sticks are hard to come by.
The ground keepers pick up the loose sticks often but leave the garbage behind.

Anyway when we arrived, one of the Hastings eagle was sitting very comfortable in it's nest.
I don't know who it was but Stan thought it was Pa.

The eagle in its nest does look proud. It should with such an accomplishment. I'm trying to pick out your 2 sticks without success. Titter

lol I tried to do that too Stim to no avail.

It is interesting how the eagles have build the right side of the nest up so high, that they are now including a third branch on the left hand side of the tree, that was much higher and did not play a role originally. Therefore the eagles have established a tripod in which their nest sits.

So now that the nest is more stable. ( I hope I explained every thing properly.)
I find that very very clever.

I have put a red arrow to the new 3rd supporting branch where in the Beginning they only had two branches.
