I was going through my photos and re-discovered the ones I took of a sea-eagle’s nest. It was on the Pacific HIghway north of Macksville heading north towards Coffs Harbour, mid-north coast of New South Wales.
The power company in NSW built the platform to encourage the sea-eagles to nest and also kindly fixed up insulators so they were able to fly to and fro and roost in safety.
We’d see one of the eagles sitting on the eggs, most likely the male coming in with food, and then a couple of heads pop up as the eggs hatched and the babies grew. Then the nest would be empty until the next breeding season started.
Sadly one nest had a sea-eagle sitting on eggs but there was a heck of a storm and when we drove that way again, there was no sign of eagles at the nest.
