According to David Hancock the nest tree is a cottonwood; the tree height is about 90 feet with the nest being positioned about 75 feet up the tree.

History of the Delta nest and its inhabitants

Timeline 2014

Eagles returned:
Oct 7th 2013

Ma Delta Injured: Observers noticed a problem with Mom's left leg the afternoon of Saturday, February 8; David Hancock and Bev Day from O.W.L. reviewed the videos, and think the leg may be broken, possibly between the equivalent of the knee and ankle, or it could just be badly sprained. Other eagles were seen in the area, so the injury could be the result of a fight with another female for control of the nest - in which case it looks as if Ma won - but at a price. love

The following added by jkr on April 26, 2013

A bit of information about our ptz cam operations.

Our zoomers have been requested to keep the zoom cam and the embedded cam open simultaneously. There is a delay from the time they zoom the cam and the time you see it so they need to see when the change takes place before moving the camera again.

Having two windows open on their screen, which may be all they can fit on their monitor, they can't always read what is being posted at the forum at that time. If you post that you want the zoom changed or the panning changed our zoomerss are not aware of your request until after they leave zooming and open the forum window again.

Our own zoomers are not the only people who can access our cam controls. The landowners have access to change the zoom/pan which takes it out of our control. David and Ken can also change the cam at any given time without our knowledge. It is not always our own zoom team on the cameras.

Our zoomers are experienced eagle observers. If the cam zooms in closely they may be checking on the health of a chick/adult, checking food items, checking markings on an adult (eg: Delta Dad has a small spot next to his pupil on the right eye which identifies him from Mom), checking beaks/feet which may change colour if eagles are poisoned, and panning the area checking for intruders and watching eaglets once they learn to branch. Many times observations which may be of concern are reported to David Hancock for his biology records.

We wish we could accommodate all requests to have the camera in the exact spot each of you want it to be but that is impossible.
Thanks
