HK Builds His Nest

HK Builds His Nest

Wednesday, March 22, 2017

A surprise to find HK on one of his favorite towers. This one is within sight of his nest, from his perspective. The Osprey have been active, so HK sightings will begin to diminish.

A "baby" Eagle visits Honey Bee

I had heard from a friend in the area that a young eagle had been a frequent visitor.  I went to check today and did find this immature Eagle perched in a tree.

It did not stay long but did provide a nice flyby.

This was the only Eagle I observed.

HK in the Nest

Another opportunity to document HK in his Honey Bee nest. He was there for about 1.5 hours while I was there and was still there when I left for the day.

HK landing.

HK almost making eye contact. 
HK feaking.

HK in the nest. 2.26.17

I found HK all alone in the nest this afternoon. It took a while to find him, as he was hunkered down way inside. But eventually, he showed himself.

Then, showed himself out!

He turned up on a tree, just off S. Independence Blvd.

And left after about 20 minutes. He gave an outstanding fly over! I never tire of these!

HK, Sterling, and some visitors. 2.20.17

Another pretty exciting time at Honey Bee. I found both HK and Sterling together in the cell tower as I arrived. Sterling left first, and was followed promptly by HK.

 I relocated him close to the nest and he offered several portrait opportunities, which I enjoyed immensely.

I went searching for him but instead found an unbanded adult visitor on a tower close to the nest.

When this eagle flew towards the nest I got there in time to see this youngster attempt to land but was promptly driven out by HK I think. This was the closest I have ever been to an eagle in the wild.

When I turned my attention back to the nest, there was one in the nest (pictured) and one in the tree who I could not positively identify. I then left for the day.
