Welcome to the Browning Rd/Paul Beach nest thread for the 2017/2018 Season

If you visit the Browning Rd nest in Wilson Creek you are welcome to post comments and pictures here.

This nest was new to the forum in July 2016 though the nest has been occupied for at least 26 years. The nest is on private property but can be viewed from the beach and from the trail to the beach. To view the nest, find the Paul Beach entrance about half way along Browning and follow the trail to the beach. Its a little rocky in places but not too bad. Turn right at the end of the trail and go down over the rocks to the pebble beach then look back to the left of the yellow house. You can also get a side view of the nest from about halfway along the trail down to the beach. Just look to the right over the yellow house.... though from this angle you are looking directly over the house so please respect the occupants privacy Smile

  • 2015 - Nest collapsed near the end of the season but the lone eaglet was seen alive and well in the area after this, so we hope that the eaglet survived
  • 2016 - 2 eaglets Big Browning and Little Browning. BB fledged on or before July 27, LB a week or so later
  • 2017 - 2 successful fledges. First around July 23, second around Aug 5
  • 2018 - ???

Mushka/Karen H noticed that one of the members of the Sunshine Coast Birding Yahoo group had noticed an adult perched on a tree near Browning Rd on Sep 21. I will try to get down there soon to check if it is one of the Brownings! Smile

UPDATE:
I think that the Yahoo Birding Group report may actually be on the Wilson Creek pair - To be confirmed

I visited the nest last Friday and saw a young adult still with dark smudges on his/her head perched near the nest tree. This eagle flew further down the beach towards the WIlson Creek territory. Then later from further down the beach I saw what looked like a mature adult sitting on one of the Brownings favourite trees.

Pics to follow

And here are the possible two adults I saw later from further along the beach . The photos were taken about 15 mins apart and I saw them one at a time so there is a possibility its the same eagle !!

Nice to see activity at your Browning nest Heather. If only 1 adult is back, that subadult could be thinking about vying to become a mate. It will be interesting to see what happens. At least you can identify that one! Grin
