  • The trio have been seen building on the nest, which is located closer to the road. Tree that was used in 2015 in no longer in existence.
  • The trio of one female and two males have been working on building up the nest through out November and December.  A pair of great horned owls have been there throughout the evening and possible looking to take over the nest. Great Horned Owls were seen pair bonding and copulating on Jan 3rd. Question – Who’s nest will it be?  Eagles or Owls?
