Eagle Crys, Jet Planes and Chain Saws

Delta O.W.L. Eagle Nest

It is again eaglet hatching season - we have three nests on camera and eggs in all, and the calls from around the world are coming into the switchboard about the various noises and sights these live feeds are showing.

It is heartening to know that so many people have concern for the eagles' (and by inference the many other wild species) interests but there is a limit to what we can do.

The first thing to understand is that every single one of the nests was built by the eagles where the sights and sounds were already present. Sidney is near the Victoria International Airport as well as a seaplane base.

BIRD LOVERS CAN SEE EAGLE EGGS ON WEBCAM

Wildlife News

Hancock Wildlife Foundation made the news this time!!  There are a few inaccuracies in this article but who are we to complain with much needed publicity such as this!!

By CANADIAN PRESS

HORNBY ISLAND, B.C. - Three nests of bald eagles in British Columbia that have been streaming live over the Internet for several years could soon have a few new additions after several eggs were laid.

The Hancock Wildlife Foundation, which operates the webcams on Hornby Island, Sydney and Delta says three eggs have already been laid in Sidney, one on Hornby Island and two in Delta.

The foundation launched the Hornby Island camera in 2006, and then set up the Sidney cam in 2007. The Delta cam is the newest.


The hatching of two baby eagles in SIdney two years ago drew worldwide attention, with virtual onlookers helping name the pair.

The Hornby Island egg is expected to hatch around April 26, the three eggs in Sidney could hatch around April 5 and the two Delta eggs could hatch by the end of this month.

The video feeds are on the foundation's website: www.hancockwildlife.org

Names have been chosen for two eaglets and a third that may hatch soon in a nest at Turtle Bay.

For the first time since the eagles drew attention in late 2007, television viewers participated in polls to name the birds.

“KRCR viewers and Redding.com readers have worked together to name the newborn eaglets. The winning names in the combined polling results are Freedom, Hope and Spirit,” Record Searchlight marketing director Michelle Martin Streeby said today after the results of both polls were tallied.
