Re: Westshore, Metchosin and Sooke Bald Eagles - 2019/2020 Season

As I was standing on the road taking a photo of the Farhill nest, one of the eagles appeared and flew over the road above us and out towards Albert Head Lagoon. When we arrived at the lagoon we heard them calling back & forth but couldn't see where they were perched. Farhill Nest (front) 25 Nov. 201...

One of the eagles was perched in their favourite tree near the bridge yesterday. A short while later it flew off down the lake and we didn't see where it landed. Awhile later we could hear both of them calling back & forth but still couldn't see them. Langford Lake Eagle 25 Nov. 2019.JPG Their old n...

One of the eagles was perched in a tall tree near their nest tree. I photographed it from the boardwalk over Swan Lake on Nov. 22nd. Poor quality photo; it was a long ways away and the sun was glaring.

One of the eagles was perched in the old nest tree on 2 Nov. but I didn't stop to take a photo. This photo was taken from the floating boardwalk at Swan Lake. The eagle was still on the same branch preening when I drove by on my way home.
