Re: Stalashen Bald Eagle Nest, Sunshine Coast B.C. Seasons 2019-2021

Marg, what a lovely memory about walking out onto Mission Point with Earl :rh:

Mission Point is such a great spot for watching eagles and other birds. Plus Mt Baker .... on a clear day of course!

And I love that romantic picture of Ma and Pa at the nest.

Re: Field Rd Bald Eagles, Sunshine Coast, BC - 2019/2021 season

Thanks Sandra! :) :luck: One morning last week there was quite the interaction between Ma and Pa and another couple that seemed to be interested in the nest and territory. Lots of swirling, whirling and shouting between all 4 adults. I saw some pretty heated exchanges with even a couple of talon fac...

Re: Field Rd Bald Eagles, Sunshine Coast, BC - 2019/2021 season

So far this year I haven't had any sightings of both adults together but many sightings of a single adult, including one bringing in a stick today. I didn't see which nest the stick was taken to but good to know that they are tackling repairs. One adult flyover on Jan 3 HWF_Field_20210103_0734.jpg A...

Re: Field Rd Bald Eagles, Sunshine Coast, BC - 2019/2021 season

Both adults were around in December and I think having to defend the territory a few times against intruders. Intruder does a flyby on Dec 2 and Ma and Pa calling to show the territory is taken HWF_Field_20201202_9356.jpg The intruder looks a new adult HWF_Field_20201202_9364.jpg Ma and Pa relax aga...

I visited on Dec 27 and not much activity as it was a pretty grey day. I saw one adult and one juvenile perched on separate trees.

Re: Sargeant Bay Bald Eagles, Halfmoon Bay Sunshine Coast, BC 2018-2021

I visited on Dec 3 and saw at least 1 adult eagle at the marsh. The nest in the tree above the B&B looked as though it had collapsed on one side so it will be interesting to see if they repair it. I have never seen any eaglets in this nest so I have been wondering if this is an old nest and they are...

Re: Stalashen Bald Eagle Nest, Sunshine Coast B.C. Seasons 2019-2021

We were about half way down the beach at Mission Point on a low tide. I don't remember it as a super low tide, just averagely low :)

But could be a useful alternative viewpoint with Margs summer view being blocked by the lilac tree. :(

Nice to see both eagles staying around! :) Just going through some pics from a few weeks ago and found this one that I took of the Stalashen nest from Mission Point. No adults around though. :( I don't remember seeing it quite so clearly from there before so perhaps a tree came down and cleared the ...

Re: Langdale Creek Bald Eagles, Sunshine Coast, BC - 2020/21 season

I travelled out on the ferry last Thu morning (Nov 19) and when I arrived at the parking lot Pa was perched on the tower. Ma arrived soon after and both were very busy preening so perhaps had just had breakfast? When I came back later the same day one adult was on the tower while the other was perch...

Some activity from November 2020 Nov 6 2020 My husband was at Langdale last Friday and spotted both eagles in the pair that may be trying to build a nest on the tower platform beside the loading ramp in berth one.

Visiting the Olave nest on July 2 I looked across and saw 1 adult top middle in this image. Hopefully that means that the adults are still claiming this territory and will be back next season to try again

Re: Field Rd Bald Eagles, Sunshine Coast, BC - 2019/2021 season

Thanks Sandra! Yes s/he did land on the nest but I couldn't really see anything so didn't post any pics. Then a few minutes later s/he flew away from the old nest and then back to the current nest, I'm sure ready for a snooze after that nerve wracking circuit :)
