Update on Eagles Nest In Tree Near 55th Avenue NE

Earlier this month, the Laurelhurst Blog posted about the long-time eagles nest, which could be seen from residences on 55th Avenue NE, suddenly disappeared. 

A concerned neighbor said at the time: 
I was looking out my window  and the nest that I've seen a tree, which can be seen from some homes on 55th Avenue NE, along the water, that has been there for years is no longer there.  The nest is in the dead tree on the lake near the dead-end at 55th Avenue NE. 
However the two eagles are still there. Does anyone know what happened to the nest? What will happen to the Eagles?  

Other neighbors sent in information following the post,saying that it seemed that the nest was gone shortly after a big windstorm: 
So sad.  I too have seen one eagle sitting in the spot where their nest is while the other one soars around the tree.  What DOES happen to them now?  
The nest may have fallen. It could be down at the foot of the tree. Eggs may already have been laid or the mother eagle has not yet laid them. It takes a while to build a new nest. Eagles are probably mourning the loss of nest and maybe the eggs. No safe place to go at this point. This is their “safe” territory. 
Recently the neighbor sent the Laurelhurst Blog an update and picture (above) saying 
that a new nest has appeared one tree to the north and is in the process of being built.
