I visited on Dec 30 and no eagles were around but the nest was still intact. Hoping for a successful season :)

Re: Sargeant Bay Bald Eagles, Halfmoon Bay Sunshine Coast, BC 2018-2020

On Dec 22 after some a few days of some big rainstorms 1 adult was drying off on the favourite tree. I yjink s/he must have flown off without me noticing as a few minutes later an adult flew over and headed back to the same spot

Re: Sargeant Bay Bald Eagles, Halfmoon Bay Sunshine Coast, BC 2018-2020

Re: Sargeant Bay Bald Eagles, Halfmoon Bay Sunshine Coast, BC 2018-2020

Lots of activity on Nov 24. I adult was sitting in a tree in the middle of the marsh. I;m not sure if s/he was hunting or looking for branches for the nest. S/he then flew off to the trees at the far side of the marsh. After a few moments there s/he flew over to the far side of the bay before circli...

Re: Field Rd Bald Eagles, Sunshine Coast, BC - 2019/2020 season

On Jan 15 there was a dispute between 2 adults near the nest tree. I actually saw them almost lock talons as they swirled and whirled. I wasn't fast enough to get any pics of that but I do have some of them giving each other stink eye from adjoining branches. After a few minutes one flew off away fr...

Re: Field Rd Bald Eagles, Sunshine Coast, BC - 2019/2020 season

On Dec 25 we had a visit from a lost domestic duck which definitely caught the attention of one of the adults.

The duck was reunited with its owners so the eagles missed out on their duck dinner!

Re: Field Rd Bald Eagles, Sunshine Coast, BC - 2019/2020 season

On Nov 25 Ma (I think) was looking for some extra branches for their nest and was sitting quite low in a tree. After looking very intently at several branches she snapped one off and flew off towards the nest. The last pic is of the nest later that day... I guess with at least one more stick!

Re: Field Rd Bald Eagles, Sunshine Coast, BC - 2019/2020 season

Last week Ma and Pa were definitely doing some nest repairs. I saw 1 adult skipping about in some big Douglas Firs near the nest tree seemingly eyeing up some branches. Then a few moments later I heard an enormous crack high up in the trees. It was out of my sight but I just caught a glimpse of some...

Re: Sargeant Bay Bald Eagles, Halfmoon Bay Sunshine Coast, BC 2018-2020

I visited the Park last Thursday (Oct 31) and saw 1 adult eagle sitting near the nest tree. Then later an adult eagle fishing out in the middle of the bay - s/he took the catch to the opposite side of the bay. I'm not sure if they were the same eagle. I also heard two eagles calling out from way ove...

Re: East Porpoise Bay Rd, Sechelt BC Eagles' Nest, by the Blue Heron sign, Sunshine Coast BC 2018-2020

I was driving past the nest today and saw an adult perched in the straggly looking tree next to the nest tree. I didn't have time for a proper look but seems that at least one of the adults is back! :)

I haven't seen this pair yet but I have definitely heard them calling.

I'm pretty sure I heard two calling to each other and also 'across the fence' to the Field Rd neighbours :)
