Re: Saxe Pt. Park Eagles, Esquimalt BC - 2019/2020/2021 Seasons

I visited the park today and still did not see or hear the eagles anywhere in the
park or in the area. Their nest looks neglected; no new sticks :(

I visited the park yesterday for the first time in many months. One of the eagles was perched in the tree near their old nest. While I was watching the nest from the roadway behind their new nest one of the eagles flew in with a big branch. When I went back to see the nest from the vantage point opp...

I visited the park yesterday but did not see or hear the eagles. They were not down the road in their perch tree or out on the rocks offshore :( However, others have seen them in their favourite perch tree at the end of the parking lot in the park.
