This thread is a bit of a work in progress, so the direction and this opening post may change over time.
The idea is to have a place for people to discuss what the Hancock Wildlife Foundation and its spokespeople are doing in an informal fashion.
For example, when David Hancock has a speaking engagement, it will be announced in our Calendar of Events and HWF Announcements area. If one of our members attended the talk, and wanted share some highlights or something new they learned - this could be a place to do that.
Another example - if David went to look at a nest where we might have a cam in a year or two, he might write about the nest in his "From the Field" area; if someone went along and wanted to share what they learned about why it did or didn't seem a good choice for a cam nest - that post and accompanying pictures could go here (once you've checked with David or Karen to make sure the location isn't confidential until details are worked out).
On occasion we may even post a newsletter to this location.
As you can see, we're very open to having our members share what's happening in and around HWF.

WELL HELLO, I am posting some pictures here that were taken by KARENB when she went with David Hancock to rescue a Juvie at the Nelson Rd. nest in Richmond. It seems the site is under construction and therefore the eagle was out of the nest, but had not fledged. So David climbed up and rescued this one and then carried it to a nearly Indian temple and climbed a ladder and then climbed up onto the roof to put the eagle at the highest point possible so he could fledge and he did.

ONE LAST picture of David Hancock climbing up the ladder to enable him to climb up the roof and put the Eagle at the highest possible point.

David held this Juvie in one hand (no gloves on) while he climbed that ladder with no help. I give him so much credit for this as I would not get that close to an eagle, let alone hold it with no gloves on!!!! ??

Vicki, thank you so much for posting that here. It's great to see David's field work and how much the eagles benefit by his determination to give them every opportunity in life. Very Happy
Not sure I'd want to be scaling a ladder up the side of a building with an eagle in my hand though Oh My
