People near, far honor Eagle Lady Jean Keene

Wildlife News

Jean Keene spoke of her love of eagles in her home last November. She past away a week ago
Jean Keene used to receive letters from children around the country wanting to know more about eagles, and she answered each one by hand.
Longtime friend Deb Leib recalled Keene taking her morning coffee at Land’s End Resort and hefting packets of school letters to go over and respond to.
“She didn’t just feed the eagles, she knew everything about them,” she said.
“Every morning she would be here having coffee and reading the paper. When she had letters, she answered every one of them by hand,” Lieb said. “She was her own woman. She had her values and her thoughts, and she persevered through whatever, the controversy with the eagles for one thing, and with the rest of her life.”
Keene, 85, died Tuesday night after a respiratory ailment, with friends around her. A home health care nurse who came in each day had told Keene she would be more comfortable at the hospital.

David Hancock Lecture at Campbell River

David Hancock Talk at the Campbell River Bald Eagle Festival:  Feb/2008

While I seem to give 40+ talks a year they are seldom recorded.  At the Campbell River Festival I had the good fortune to have videographer Laura Murphy, a BCIT student, on hand and willing.  So here is the video BUT without my fine collection of visuals cut in.  What you get is my talk with only the Power Point images in the background.

Perhaps someone will teach me how to insert the Power Point images into this video.

David's talking schedule is posted on our Calendar so ably maintained by Terry  -- when you send her other items to be listed.

My speaking topics and how to contact me are at:   David Hancock TALKS

Doug CArrick and his Hornby Island Eagles

Doug Carrick and his Hornby Island Bald Eagles -- An Interview


At last year's Campbell River Bald Eagle Festival I had the opportunity to sit down with Doug and talk about his early beginnings with eagles.  I had the good luck to have Laura Murphy, a BCIT student in their Video Department, on hand to tape our conversation.

The plan is to have this combined with the videos he has made from the various years working with his eagles to produce a 2 hour presentation  -- a tribute to Doug and his birds.

In the meantime, and as of today when Ken Cillis was at Dougs to connect up these eagles to the WEB (Feb 3.09),  perhaps you will be able to directly follow the life of eagles on our CAMS.

Doug's interview is at:   Doug Carrick's Video Talk with David Hancock

If you are not already doing so please check the Live Video CAMS of the Hornby Island Eagles

Also check out the book Doug just wrote on these eagles and his life following them:

Good eagling.
