This week’s post will introduce you to a new set of bald eagles who are now nesting on Union Bay. I suspect it is their very first nest and clearly a new territory. I also find it interesting to consider how the existing eagle pairs are adapting, particularly, the Talarus pair. They have lost part of their summer territory to Chester and Lacey - the new osprey who moved in two years ago. Now, they appear to have lost all the area south of Husky Stadium to this new eagle pair. It makes me wonder what is the minimum territory they need to survive? Are these additional nesting birds long-term examples of the recovery from DDT? If we can clean up the water in Union Bay will more fish survive and therefore further increase the avian, fish-eating carrying capacity?

I hope you enjoy the post:

Have a great day on Union Bay, where eagles nest in the city!
