When I saw the nest yesterday I was very afraid that this would happen.
I feel terrible.
Thank you Scotty for taking the body of that unfortunately eaglet home.
You will have to give it to David Hancock.
Please hang on to it.
sad Cry

Destiny may your spirit soar to the heavens and beyond.

unfortunatly i have a house guest, i think it's the small one. i don't have a lot of freezer space, suggestions please.



Hi Scotty

I will phone David Hancock.
I am sure that he would want to pick up the eaglet for examination.
I will keep you informed.
To say that I am upset is an understatement.

Scott - You probably mean the size of the eaglet's feet, which are yellow. The talons, which are the claws, are black. They have big feet for their size at this age. I tried finding a phone number for you unsuccessfully. Heather or Annemie can give you my number. I won't list it here. Please call me.

Heather and Annemie - No answer for Martin. Left a voice mail. Twice tried to call David but he must still be in his meeting. No voice mail on his phone. Were you able to contact Larry?

ETA: 3:15 PM - David Hancock is on his way to the nest site. His meeting in Richmond is over and he's leaving now. He will meet you guys at the nest tree. Wish I had gone with him today but I had other business here in Langley. David will contact the M.O.E.

To the faithful followers of this nest, I am very sorry for your loss of one of your 3 amigos. This is a sad day.

David Hancock called me from the nest site to say that a second eaglet fell from the nest and someone from OWL came to get it. Hopefully it will survive but actually I'm surprised it even survived the fall. OWL also took the body of the dead eaglet and will turn it over to the M.O.E. David does not hold out much hope for the remaining eaglet up in what is left of the nest. We have no money to get a crane to rescue the chick unfortunately. Donations are way down this year due to the terrible cam problems and we've lost many viewers and potential donors. Contrary to other eagle nest cams on the Internet, HWF has absolutely no grants or any type of government backing or major sponsors. We try to hang on from year to year.
