Dear Heather, Stuart, Stan and Annemie I feel very sad for all of you and everybody who checks this nest. It's a sad day. Big hugs

Thanks for posting your sad report, Heather, along with the pictures. I'll be sure to see that David gets them.

Judy - As far as a 'starter nest' goes, don't forget that the Hastings/PNE nest trees are all on public property. So that makes it difficult to do that. Normally David only deals with private property owners in cases like that.

wave Hello to all of our wonderful members!!

I'm not sure if all of you are aware that folks here on HWF follow and report on 30 North American eagle nests with cams, our 4 Hancock eagle nests, and over 25 eagles nests without cams that have "ground crews" reporting on them--all this plus threads for osprey, hawks, falcons, albatrosses, pandas, and more !! Left thumb up

We are thrilled that so many of you have chosen our forum to post your observations to help us add to the knowledge base for eagles and other wildlife or just to read about your favorite wildlife - BUT we do need your help to keep the forum going. The server that runs our website and forum (think giant hard drives in a secure place) costs $800/month !!! WOW!! Many of you may have noticed that the forum has been down from time to time because of server issues over the last month. The hours put in by our very dedicated tech person to get us back up and to (knock on wood) solve the biggest problem are an additional cost that may average another $800/month.

A bit of good news - a year ago we only had 3 people donating monthly for a total of $47 - and we now have 18 people donating monthly for a total of $522. But as you can all see we need around $1600/month just to keep the server and the main stuff going, not including the costs for the cams at our four Hancock nests.

If you could do a small monthly donation so that we could count on your help every month that would be wonderful! CanadaHelps makes it easy to set up a monthly donation. Or if a one-time donation would work better for you it can also be done easily with CanadaHelps or PayPal You don't need to be in Canada to use CanadaHelps --Many of our American members-including me- and others use it.


Asking for money is never easy--but we do have a good thing happening here at HWF! We sure could use your help to keep it going. If you can - please help!! Help emo

Thanks, Karen - I wasn't sure. I wonder if there's a way it could be approached from a public safety perspective - but it does seem a long shot.

Hello Everyone,

Wow, so many of you have sent your kind words and wishes our way, and for that I truly am thankful to each and every one of you. hug
sctth4 I'm so sorry that you've had to endure another season of mourning calls. I hope this pair can heal soon and, once again, move on.

I'm making this post today, because I had the opportunity to get a copy of a picture which Jason/confusion circle, took of the tiny eaglet. A much clearer picture than the one I took. I then showed it to David, who told me that this baby had not been hatched when it hit the ground. Being that it is still in a 'pre-birth(hatch) fetal position', and the little tooth is still on the beak. David told me that little tooth usually disappears very shortly after a hatch. Something I thought as soon as I first saw the bird. The egg broke open when it hit the ground. I hope this photo doesn't bother anyone, and I thank Jason for giving me permission to use his photo for this post. I am also thankful that David could answer a question that stayed in the back of my mind since the day I made this tragic discovery.
Here is Jason's photo, and I hope this post puts to rest some of the unanswered questions some may have still had.

Thanks so much for posting Jason's picture of the unborn chick, Heather. As sad as it is to view, it's also very educational. God bless this little one that never took it's first breath.
