Eagles in the city: Feathered Delta parents no longer empty-nesters

Wildlife News

Last month, members of the Hancock Wildlife Foundation turned off the cameras aimed at an eagle nest at the OWL Rehabilitation Society.

It was a disappointing spring, as the new parents, a pair of bald eagles, finally abandoned their infertile eggs to the elements.

At about the same time, researcher David Hancock's people started watching the Delta 1 nest, which itself didn't have a great track record after cameras were set up last year.

The parent eagles had arrived late this season to the small and deteriorated hawk nest east of Ladner, and there were discussions as to whether to even broadcast the activity online.

Researchers – and web surfers – were suddenly hopeful as at least one egg was seen in the formerly abandoned nest.
