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

PGully , thanks for posting your observations. My birding partner visited the park today and didn't see the eagles at first, then they both showed up. One went in the nest and then they both took off towards the heron rookery. They went back to the nest to enjoy their meal. She could not see any yo...

Just as I got there I looked up and saw an eagle flying overhead, towards the nest tree area. Having parked my vehicle on the opposite ...

Re: Saxe Pt. Park Eagles, Esquimalt BC - 2019/2020 Season

I went to the park yesterday but sadly did not see or hear the eagles anywhere in the park or down the road in their perch trees. Their nest looks very neglected so I am assuming they are not raising a family this season :( I took some photos of the nest from both sides. Saxe Pt. Nest(1) 8 May.JPG S...

I visited the nest areas yesterday but did not see or hear any eagles in the area. The Coles Bay nest looks like it could use a bit of refurbishing.

The eagle was still sitting on the log at the side of the lake when I left 20 minutes later.
It had changed positions a few times, perhaps looking a fish to grab.
