Morning Bev and all Harrison friends! S. embedded cam is still down for me too, Bev - although until a few minutes ago all the cams were down, regardless of which search engine I tried. That started last night.

Yolande - You were asking about the number of eagle nests in the Harrison Mills area and I apologize that I forgot to include that in my post yesterday. We know of 2 nests along Hwy. #7 just before Morris Valley Road, 1 on the north side and 1 over on Harrison Bay. They are both occupied by eagles so we know they are not alternate nests.

Over at the Kilby Historical Site there are 2 different nests about a mile or so apart, both occupied by pairs so we know they are not alternate nests. On the east side of the Harrison River are another 2 nests occupied by different pairs.

During the eagle festival some of our HWF members were walking along the shore and found a new nest that cannot be see from our cams. David and I have never seen it although we looked for it after being told about it. So there are at least 7 or 8 other nests in the HM area as David also found a new occupied nest to the north of our HM cam nest. Therefore it's very hard to tell which of these eagles are perching in the nearby trees because Ma and Pa Harrison Mills aka Mr. and Mrs. Honeycomb have lots of neighbors.

David has over 360 nests marked on his eagle map that he has personally numbered. As there are obviously many other nests here in the Lower Mainland that have not been reported to us, there are probably at least 500 eagle nests in the Metro Vancouver/Lower Fraser Valley area as far east as Harrison Mills on the north and Chilliwack on the south. When you considered that back in the 60s when David was doing his graduate work on bald eagles, he could only find 3 nests - 1 at Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver, 1 in Stanley Park and 1 on Dollarton Hwy. in North Vancouver!! What a great comeback the bald eagle has made.

Double WOW!, Karen and thanks so much for this information! The comeback is amazing [from the 60's] and is maybe a good example of what citizen involvement, some great advocacy, and decent legislation can do.

No wonder the zoomers can almost always find an eagle or two on their zooms around the area - this is great to know. And, thanks Bev for adding it to the HM nest intro.

Karen - hope you are seeing all the new movies during your movie download fest - 3rd Hobbit for me tomorrow!
