The Lafarge downtown Vancouver concrete plant is on the waterfront of Vancouver’s inner harbor, beside the main CP rail tracks and sidings, in the heart of Vancouver’s busy container and grain port facilities – and the Lafarge eagles nested in a tree there for several years.  As the tree got more fragile, Lafarge asked David Hancock to build this artificial nest.  The original nest came down a few years ago, happily after the nesting season was over – and the eagles have chosen to raise their chicks in a new nest a few blocks away – but they return here to keep watch on their territory, and sometimes to have a snack in the artificial nest, as one is doing here.  You can read more about them here –  This screenshot was captured by forum member SueD – and I love the fact that our most urban nest sometimes has really lovely images!
