Jordan Lake Bald Eagle Nests post Hurricane Florence, 3 photos 10/09/2018

All 3 of the Eagle Nests we have been monitoring together are mostly intact.
There is some damage to 2 of the nests.  Please see my notes on each nest as to my best guess for future use.
We will know by the beginning of December if the parents decide to repair the nests.
Now to hope that Hurricane Michael doesn’t cause more damage.
 
First Nest – home of Kate and Petruchio
The surrounding trees and the nest tree appear to have lost some small branches.
I cannot see any major damage to the nest and its tree. 
 Remember, however, that I can only see one side – that is always true.
 
 
H&G Nest – home of Hershey and Godiva
Their nest, its tree and surrounding trees seem to be just as they were before the storm.
 
 
Ranger Nest – home of Mom and Dad Ranger
 
This nest and its tree had the most damage.
There had been a long branch to the left of the nest; it had fallen before the hurricane.
Some of the left edge of the nest appears to have been disrupted.
Some of the smaller branches of the nest tree have also dropped.
There will need to be a lot of repair by the parents and I will be watching closely starting in December to see if the nest will be reused.
