In both pictures the yellow circle is the new nest and the red circle is where the old nest was.
Both pictures are taken from the Hastings parking lot across the street from the park.

Here's some observations to help interpret Annemie's pictures from today. First thing you'll notice is from the 2nd picture taken further up the parking lot the new nest appears to be 2 high fir trees down from the nest tree {where the nest fell down}. As you get closer the tree that appears to be one tree from further up in the middle is actually 2 high firs very close to each other as seen in the 1st photo.

So that being the case the new nest is actually the 3rd high fir tree east of the old nest but visually appears to be 2 trees down till you take a closer inspection.

So for David's Google Earth map lets call it 3 down east.

Hope this finally settles the question of the location of the new nest Phew

Hi everyone

Stan and I were at the Hastings nest at around 2:45 pm and we saw one eagle in the nest.
The Hastings eagles are always on the nest when we go by there, they are good parents.

In this picture we can see a wing. (Click 2 x to enlarge)

In this next picture we see the head of the eagle right in front of the tree trunk, the same position as we saw in previous pictures.
The eagles head looks so small compared to that huge nest.
Yes. I have noticed the Hastings eagles build big.

Thank you Stan for your post in helping me explain where the new nest is. hug

Thanks Stan and Annemie for your report that I'm just now reading. I was out for a good part of the day so I missed Annemie's call. I'll let David know.

I just received this from David:

Karen, Can you please send my apologies for not answering all the emails personally.

Thank you everyone who has reached out to David either personally or through me, his assistant. I've been sending him all the condolences posted in our forums, facebook or emails sent to me.
