Re: Beacon Hill Park Eagles, Victoria BC - 2019/2020 Season

Two adult bald eagles were on the lamp standard at Ogden Point this morning. They were very vocal.
I didn't have my camera this time.

Re: Beacon Hill Park Eagles, Victoria BC - 2019/2020 Season

Both BHP eagles were on the same lamp standard at Ogden Point this morning. In all the time I have watched them I have never seen them on the same standard!

Re: Beacon Hill Park Eagles, Victoria BC - 2019/2020 Season

This morning I saw an adult bald eagle sitting on the rocks at Holland Point. Eagle at Holland Point Dec 4 2019.jpg Others said there had been two eagles there, and it sort of looks like another pair of legs but no white head. The eagle was there for half an hour, and perhaps longer. Some people wit...

Re: Beacon Hill Park Eagles, Victoria BC - 2019/2020 Season

I saw an adult eagle today just after 12 noon. I was driving north on Douglas at Simcoe, admiring the double rainbow, when a mature eagle flew south along the edge of BHP. No time for a photo but it was low enough to see great detail. Perhaps that was the same one you saw, sassyk.

Re: Beacon Hill Park Eagles, Victoria BC - 2019/2020 Season

At ten o'clock this morning I saw a bald eagle fly east just off Holland Point. At few minutes later I saw two eagles flying just above the water, but not catching anything. I followed their direction and saw them both sitting on a rock offshore. I didn't have binoculars, but two other people confir...

Re: Beacon Hill Park Eagles, Victoria BC - 2019/2020 Season

One of the BHP eagles was on lookout duty at Ogden Point this morning. It was about 9 AM PST.
I have tried to attach a photo. Hope it works.

Re: Beacon Hill Park Eagles, Victoria BC - 2019/2020 Season

There was an eagle sitting atop the BHP totem at 9:30 this morning. It was backlit so I couldn't tell if it was mature.

Re: Beacon Hill Park Eagles, Victoria BC - 2019/2020 Season

One of the BHP eagles has returned. S/He was sitting on the rocks off Holland Point about 9:10 today, Sept 30. S/He then flew low over the water toward the Breakwater. Maybe landed on the lamp standards at Ogden Point, a favourite perch, but I didn't see him/her land.

Re: Beacon Hill Park Eagles, Victoria BC - 2018/2019 Season

A mature bald eagle flew over Dallas Road at 10:20 this morning. It was near the flagpole and was pretty much following the road.

Re: Beacon Hill Park Eagles, Victoria BC - 2018/2019 Season

I wonder if the eagle pair who have been seen around the Ross Bay cemetery are the Beacon Hill pair, or a new mated pair.
Any ideas?

Re: Beacon Hill Park Eagles, Victoria BC - 2017/2018 Season

I haven't seen any sign of an eagle for a few weeks. Not on the totem pole, not on the Ogden Point lamp standards. Was under the nest tree yesterday and no sign of life.

Re: Beacon Hill Park Eagles, Victoria BC - 2017/2018 Season

I don't know what happened to the message I posted in this thread yesterday. Off into the ether, I suppose! My husband saw two eagles in a courtship flight yesterday morning. They flew over the totem pole towards Clover Point, then flew East past Ross Bay Cemetery. He said it was beautiful to watch,...
