hug Happy New Year to you too Karen!!! Hoping 2017 is filled with lots of new eagle babies in all of the HWF nests!Bravo

Friday January 6, 2017

Guess who I found in her old nest this morning?!? The lovely Miss Liberty was seen on the Christmas Tree around 7:45 am by Sue who texted me and I got down there around 9:30am and had a short but sweet visit with her!Red Heart

It brought back so many good memories of years past seeing Liberty up there in her old nest at Turtle Bay...

Oh how wonderful to see Liberty on her old nest. Talons crossed that she will use it this year.

wave Hi Karen!

Wouldn't that be wonderful?!? But, to this point we have not seen them doing any nestorations on this nest this season. But, the guys who work down at Riverview have seen them actively working on that nest, so it looks like that will be their choice this season. But, who knows what the future might bring?!? We will indeed keep our talons crossed!!!

Here are a few more shots that I took with my Canon SX-50 Point & Shoot as I first rode up to the nest area on the 44 Pedestrian/Bike Trail on Friday 1/6/17 around 9:15 a.m...

On a positive note, it is sure good to see Liberty land and sit inside her old nest because that could indicate that there isn't a problem with the nest or nest tree itself and could still be used in the future?!?

After the eaglecam installation last year, we weren't sure if they would ever use this nest again? We did see them land in there several times in the beginning of the 2015-2016 season in October & November, but they never began nestorations as they normally did at that time. Then, if you recall, in early December we saw them start building a brand new nest in another Cottonwood Tree along the River Trail not too far away from the Family Tree, but they abandoned that nest 3 weeks later. They finally settled on a nest inside a "Witch's Broom" of a Gray Pine Tree about 1.5-2 miles south of the Turtle Bay area at the Riverview Golf & Country Club! That is where they raised their 2 offspring Birdie & Bogey last year!

I recently heard that the cottonwood tree that they started building their 2nd nest in along the river trail was recently cut down?!? So, that tree is no longer an option for them if they do return to the Turtle Bay area Sad

Here is Miss Liberty in her old nest on Friday morning...

Terri, I remember the Sidney eagles one year who really kept us guessing what nest they would use. We didn't know until they actually laid their eggs which nest it would be. This also happened last year at our Lafarge nest. So only time will tell.
