Welcome to the Marigold Park Eagles thread for the 2015/2016/2017 seasons. For each of the past 4 years the eagles have produced and successfully fledged 2 eaglets. Info on this nest for previous years can be found here. Please feel welcome to post your observations, photos and videos if you visit this nest territory.

Part of the eagle's nest fell or blew down in one of the wind storms we had in Dec. Both the eagles have been in the park daily, fixing up their nest and they are very vocal Oh My I managed to get over to the park today but the eagles were nowhere to be seen. I took a few pics of the rather sorry looking nest and also of the nest material on the ground under the tree.

Very sad news; the nest tree fell in the wind storm we had last night and the park is a mess Sad The eagles had been fixing up their nest the past few weeks.

I visited the park yesterday and took some pics of the nest tree and another tree nearby that came down in the wind storm in March. It was very sad to see Sad

The bare spot where the nest tree stood.

This is the spot where the nest landed. The park workers removed the nest the day after the tree came down. There were no eggs in the nest but the eagles' activities indicated they were very close to laying eggs.

This is the old Red-tailed Hawk's nest that the eagles have been fixing up. If they choose to use this nest next year it will be much easier to view.

Close-up of the nest that shows quite a few new sticks added. It doesn't look like it has many supporting branches Oh My

Due to the fact that the eagles lost part of their nest in Dec. of last year, and the entire nest tree blew down in Mar. of this year Sad I do not see the need to set up a new thread for this nest for the coming season. I have changed the subject of this thread to include the 2016/2017 season. Please feel welcome to continue posting observations, photos and videos on this thread if you visit their nest territory.

My contact person for this nest has reported that the eagles continued to remain in their territory calling back and forth to each other and chasing intruders away from their nest area. They have continued to add sticks to an old Red-tailed Hawk's nest on the edge of the park and I will continue to watch them throughout the winter for further nestorations.

I wish the eagles a safe journey to the salmon buffet and hope to see them back in their territory soon, looking healthy and well fed Left thumb up I will keep my fingers crossed that this pair will produce young next spring.
