Community anticipates eagle egg hatch

Wildlife News

By Nathan Solis of the Redding Record Searchlight
Posted: Yesterday 6:00 p.m.

A dreary wind blows over the Riverview Golf & Country Club fairway as a pair of bald eagles incubates an undetermined number of eggs in their nest.

That's at least according to Terri Lhuillier, avid eagle watcher from Redding.

Lhuillier sports a blue parka as rain falls sideways and winds blow forcefully. The eagle pair, Liberty and Spirit, cannot be seen from the ground as they hunker in the nest.

Updated TV News Story on Strathcona Eagle

Wildlife News

Here's a link to the updated story that CTV news did last night on the male eagle at the Strathcona neighborhood of Vancouver, BC.  Our member, Larry, did a great job in his interview.  I noticed that CTV also used footage from our eagle nest cam at Delta 2 where 'Ma Delta 2' is incubating 2 eggs.

Flying free: injured eagle released into wild

Wildlife News

Wonderful news for the Strathcona eagles and ground observers of this nest in Vancouver, BC.

The male has survived being electrocuted in December!! That is so rare for an eagle to survive an electrocution. OWL (Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society) released him yesterday, at the nest site. Some of our local Hancock Wildlife members were able to attend and see him hopefully join his mate. Here's the video of the CTV news broadcast regarding the eagle release.


Here's the link to the HWF discussion forum for the Strathcona eagle nest.  I have posted my pictures there showing David Hancock banding 'Pa Strathcona' earlier this week, prior to the eagle's release yesterday.
