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

I visited the park this evening and saw one adult in the nest but no eaglets :dunno: It was a bit windy so they might have been lying down in the nest. After I had been over to the woods to see the owls, I went back to the nest and didn't see the adult or the eaglets. I hope they are OK :luck: I too...

Re: Towner Road Bald Eagle Nest- North Saanich BC-2018-2019 Season

I was informed that the eagles had built a new nest after their old nest tree blew down in a storm. I visited the area on June 12th and saw the old nest tree in pieces. We also saw one of the adults flying from the new nest towards the bay and heard an eaglet calling. We located the new nest and saw...

This American Kestrel was very busy flitting back and forth from its nest
in a snag to the surrounding trees near Centennial Park on June 12th.

Re: Southern Vancouver Island BC Eagle Nests - 2018/2019 Season

After several attempts to locate a nest on the south end of Pat Bay, with the help of my birding partner and her scope, we located the nest on June 12th. I photographed it from the parking lot at Pat Bay Park, next to the Coast Guard docks. There are two good-sized eaglets in the nest :woohoo: South...

Re: Saanichton Bay Eagles, Central Saanich BC - 2018/2019 Season

We observed the nest from several vantage points and were sure there is at least one eaglet and possibly two in the nest. Saanichton Bay...

I did not see any action in the nest so I'm not sure if this pair have produced any eaglets this season. My birding partner will try to contact the property owner for information. Swa...

I went to see how Pa and his family are doing yesterday. Both eaglets were sitting up in the nest looking out over the meadow. We did not see Pa anywhere in the area but his new mate flew in with something in her talons. One of the eaglets rushed over to see what it was but we did not see Mom feedin...
