Can't help but wonder if this nest has been abandoned? That raccoon looks mighty at home.

I agree! The racoon looks very comfy in the Eagle nest. Doesn't it understand what is going on?
NO predators allowed; it's an eagle nest! I seem to recall seeing one of the eagles in here a couple of weeks ago for a few days at least.
Well, what will the eagles do about it? And will the racoon return after it gets hungry and/or thirsty?

Wow - I missed that. I've had the cam on, but only the WA, assuming I'd see the eagles fly in and switch on the overhead cam if there was activity. I'm guessing this fellow didn't fly. Chin

Well, I suppose we don't have a raccoon cam....

More seriously, it would not be a good thing if he got too comfortable and the eagles decided to use the nest. They are definitely a threat to eggs and young eagles. I know in some places wildlife officials can install predator guards (a metal sleeve around the trunk, making it impossible - or at least a whole lot harder - for predators to climb into the tree) - but I don't know if that's done in BC. I also don't know if there needs to be more evidence it's an active nest before they would consider that.

As some TV person used to say, "It's always something...."

I'd never have believed it... I was over checking at WE for any hotSpots, and while there doesn't seem to be any significant action that we've missed the last week or so, there are clips mentioning the 'coon.

Interesting, Terry. I guess I'll need to keep both minicams open if I'm trying to watch the nest. Whistling
