Cover Story

A Pender Island Eaglet

by Ralph Keefer

The subject of this month’s cover, captured so beautifully by Myles Clarke on a recent trip to Pender Island with his wife Jane, is a seven-week-old eaglet (for the time being, unnamed). That may change! A Netflix crew was here for several months and now moves into post production, (part of the crew filming Wild Babies) at which point he/she/they/it will have a pronoun chosen, take on a whole new persona, have the remarkable struggles of its early life dramatized, and perhaps get a hair/feather makeover in the process. We won’t speak here of the earlier demise of its sibling. Whatever happens, Junior’s goal will be to fledge in five or six more weeks
