Oh no Cry

I am so sorry to hear this - I was so hoping that this would be a good year for them.

I do know that David seems to work with all sorts of entities to build starter nests - and am wondering if whoever has authority over whatever there could work with him to put up something that would stay up.

Big hugs to all who have been following this nest - keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers tonight.

So sorry to hear about the death of the eaglet from this nest, I live close by and watch these eagles regularly so it was with a heavy heart when I read all this. So sorry to all the observers of this nest, this is really sad news.

Oh Scott, you can't go home to get away from their sadness. You are home! This must be very distressing for you as well after the last 2 years and now this. Big hugs

Byebye Hi everyone

Thank you Stim, Jean, JudyB and EastVanGirl for your support.
Thank you for your pictures and your reports Heather and Stan.

This is now the 3rd year that I have personally witnessed 5 Hastings eaglets falling off their nest and or lying dead on the ground.

All in all the Hastings pair have lost at least 6 babies and
I knew that would happen just like I have known it every year.
That was the hard part, knowing it, seeing it and not being able to do anything about it.

When I saw that little eaglet on the ground it looked to me as it had already left the egg a day or so ago.
I thought it had already outgrown the egg shell.
The eggshells that we saw under the tree had blood on it. I think that the embryo that belonged to those shells was eaten by crows or something else on the ground so in other words, I believe that the Hastings eagles had two eggs that they lost. sad
What a shame. Ma and Pa Hastings were faithfully sitting on their eggs every time we visited them.

Stan and I were walking around Hastings lake at 5:00 pm.
Both eagles were sitting in the nest tree side by side.
Then we heard their voices really loudly and turned around and saw them mating. Oh My
Seeing that made me a bit happy.
When they finished mating they flew to what was left of the nest.

I am so sorry Scott that you have to listen to Ma and Pa Hasting crying for their babies. That is so hard to do. Cry

Hello everyone

I am really very, very sorry to hear about this tragedy. I know what you mean about those mourning calls. I heard it for 3 weeks after the male at Vanier lost his mate 3 seasons ago. It is a very distinct, haunting wail. I am happy though that they are still have each other and have been seen mating. That must give some comfort. I am sorry to say that the Vanier male has lost another mate, She has been missing since Wednesday so he is alone taking care of the babies which are now 17 days old. As soon as he tries to leave the nest it fills up with crows ready to pounce.. I don't know how he will manage. Let's hope the rest of our Eagles have strong, healthy babies.
