Re: Pa Sidney- BC Bald Eagle Nest - Epicure- Pat Bay - 2018-2019 Season

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...

Re: Deep Cove Winery Eagles, North Saanich - 2018/2019 Season

I stopped at the winery nest yesterday and did not see or hear any eagles in the area or any eaglets in the nest. I have sent another email to Elyse to enquire about the eagles but have not received a reply :(

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

I checked on the Centennial Park eagles yesterday and got a nice surprise. Two eaglets were sitting up in the nest :woohoo: We did not see or hear either of the adults until after we had been there for awhile. One flew over the park towards the nest but kept on going. We realized it was chasing an A...

Re: Willis Point Eagles, North Saanich, BC - 2018/2019 Season

I checked on this nest again yesterday and we were very appreciative of the property caretaker to let us roam the area to get a better look at the nest. There is one healthy looking eaglet in the nest but we did not see a second one. The eaglet flapped its wings a few times and jumped up on a stump ...
