Finally getting around to posting some of my photos from my visit to the nest site on Fri. June16th. Most of them have been cropped a bit.

It was nice to meet Anthony Bucci, who lives on the lower Mainland and Suzanne Huot, who have both taken some beautiful photos of the eaglets & hawklet.

One of the 3 times the male flew into the nest with prey, dropped the prey in the nest and promptly left. Hawklet is on the left of the male.

One of the adults was perched on a small branch behind the nest. I had to go down the road to see it.

Oh My SassyK, these are just beautiful....................very talented you are and thank you much for such a great capture of several events, and how beautiful the last picture is of a parent resting at the end of a broken branch, I almost missed the parent as i was so captivated by the size of the nest!
