Re: Reservoir Rd Nest, Sechelt BC 2019-2020 SEASON!

Great observations of the activity at this nest Karen. And I'm glad to hear that the eaglets seemed well fed :clap:

Thanks for sharing! :)

So glad that you got down there Sandra! :) And also glad that you saw at least one adult.

Fingers crossed that the eaglet sighting was a real sighting! :luck:

Re: Wilson Creek Bald Eagles, Sunshine Coast, BC 2018-2019

On July 10 I was able to go and visit the property just across from the Wilson Creek Mall. I have a contact that works at the property and she mentioned that they often see and hear the eagles all around the property. I don't believe the nest that's visible from the highway is active so I was on a q...

Re: Stalashen Bald Eagle Nest, Sunshine Coast B.C. Season 2019-2020

I'm so sorry that you don't have a clear view any more Marg. :( But if the adults are still around maybe that means that there are some eaglets? :luck:

I live very near to this nest so could pop down later this week. Where is the best place to view from the ground?

Re: Coopers Green Bald Eagles, Halfmoon Bay, Sunshine Coast, BC 2019-2020

I emailed my friend who lives near this nest to see if she had seen any eagles this spring/summer. She hadn't been to the beach in a while but mentioned that her sister who has been visiting since March had been watching the eagles at that spot on the beach . Her sister reported seeing 2 adults and ...

I visited the nest this morning and all seemed quiet. A pretty contented looking single eaglet was visible in the nest with Ma and Pa perched nearby.

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

On June 6 (posted on June 21) I saw what looked like 2 eaglets. But since then I have seen only 1 eaglet. It could be that I am seeing both eaglets ..... just one at a time! I guess only time will tell ...... but fingers crossed that both eaglets are alive are well. :luck:

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

Around 5pm on June 26 it looked like an eaglet was self feeding! Sadly looks like some plastic on the edge of the nest but the pressure on the adults to find food for their eaglets is immense and they do whatever they have to do to feed the family.
