A Wildlife Drama - Hornby Nest Chick Gone

Wildlife News

"Echo," the name given to one of the chicks at the Hornby Island nest where Doug Carrick put the first in-nest eagle camera, sadly was killed Monday when the chick became tangled in Mom's feathers and was dropped out of the tree.

For details of this you should take a look at the HWF discussion forum for the Hornby Nest:

We are priviledged to be able to watch nature in its rawest forms. Most times we see wonderful things, playful things, informative things.

Sometimes we witness tragedy, but that's part of nature too.

We all take something away with us when we spend time with nature - awe, amazement, and compassion.

I think that the whole process of being able to watch these birds is truly amazing.
I grew up with the knowledge of Bald Eagles and a love of them from leaving on the beach every summer at our cabin, on Vancouver Island.
I am truly saddened by the loss of the Hornby chck "Echo" . The parents have become my favorites to observe.
I have also come to realize by watching this pair and the pair in Sidney, that these birds are always right out there in every kind of weather.
They are amazing parents and have their own personalities.
Thank you to Doug Carrick and his family for caring so much for these birds.

I just joined the Hornby Nest.  This is a beautiful site.  I've been watching the Sooner Lake eaglet in Okla but this is just beautiful.  So sorry about Echo.  Wed. (I think) the eaglet bombed the camera lens.  I actually saw that, it was hilarious,  The lens is looking better today.
