On Sunday, as I was exiting east from the Issaquah Costco, I noticed what seemed to be a large nest in the trees beyond the Pickering Barn. I had my bins so I drove into the Pickering Barn parking lot and saw a white eagle's head above the rim of the nest. As I watched, another eagle arrived with a stick which it passed to the waiting eagle.
I assume this is a new nest because it is readily visible from heavily traveled SE 56th St and I had not noticed it before. I checked with some local birders and they had not noticed it either.
The nest is very close to the location of the Issaquah Farmers Market which will open in April. I hope the eagles are able to resist the creeping urbanism because the nest would provide a close and accessible viewing resource.
