I've just put a photo of the nest from the water to give you a better idea of the tree structure at http://www.iws.org/SCZ%20eagles/PH%20nest%20from%20water.jpg. This photo was taken at about a 90 degree angle to the right of the video view. I think the bird is out on the small branch in the upper right corner when it disappears to the right. When it is to the left or off the front of the nest, there are a lot of small branches that Jim was actually able to stand on and walk across, so they can easily support the eaglet.

:o Thanks so much for posting this picture. Yep, it sure looks like #49 has a BIG playground for his wing exercises! He is extremely active...more so than the Maine eaglets and the Saanich eaglets too? Is he overly active, or is this common among the eaglets that you've studied? I also wonder if he's more active because he has been alone and very eager to "get on" with his life? Any thoughts would greatly be appreciated. Thanks!! B)

:unsure: I'm not sure when this photo was taken of the nest site, but since there are biologists out on the island daily, I'm wondering if periodic photos could be taken while the fledging process is taking place, or is that still too risky to get any where near the vicinity during fledging? I certainly wouldn't want to jeopardize #49. I think he's going to be an amazing eagle to track over his lifetime! ;)

Thank you Peter for taking the time to post the photograph.
The eaglet certainly has a beautiful area to discover once he fully fledges.

Thank you so very much for the photo of the nest area. It is reassuring to know that #49 is actually quite close to his nest. Thank you also for this wonderful learning opportunity in having the eagle cam available for everyone to watch. I can't believe the learning curve that I've been on! It has been terrific. :)

I just now had a chance to download the picture - fabulous!! It's wonderful to see the different perspective. I was amazed to see how much the tree to the left is leaning - hard to tell which tree the nest is actually on top of. Thanks so much for posting this photo!
