Re: Southern Vancouver Island BC Eagle Nests - 2018 Season

I first reported on this nest in Central Saanich here. I visited this nest yesterday and sadly half of the nest has fallen down. It appears to be abandoned but unfortunately there were no neighbours out and about to chat with about the eagles.

Re: Brentwood Bay Eagles, Central Saanich BC - 2017/2018 Season

These 2 photos of the Wallace Drive nest were taken from the other side of the nest on Stellys X-Road. I believe this is the other adult in the tree at the other end of the stand of Cottonwoods.

Re: Brentwood Bay Eagles, Central Saanich BC - 2017/2018 Season

I visited the Wallace Drive and Centennial Park nests yesterday. One adult was perched in the Cottonwood tree on Wallace Drive, above where their original nest was. These photos were taken from the side road behind the big field across the road from the nest tree. IMG_1168 - Copy.JPG IMG_1175 - Copy...

Re: Ma & Pa Sidney BC Bald Eagles -Patricia Bay - 2017-2018 Season

This is the other eagle perched lower down on the snag. In some of my photos this one did look like our Pa; in others it didn't. I'm still not convinced it is or isn't.

This is the eagle perched a few trees to the right of the same snag I photographed them in the previous 2 times I visited. The photo is a bit blurry; I had to find an opening through the trees.

Re: Ma & Pa Sidney BC Bald Eagles -Patricia Bay - 2017-2018 Season

I went to visit Ma & Pa today with 2 of my birding friends. They were perched in different trees on the property adjacent to the Epicure property; one in the same snag I have photographed them in on 2 previous visits, and the other one a few trees to the right. A short while later the one in the tre...

Re: Saxe Pt. Park Eagles, Esquimalt BC - 2017/2018 Season

I visited the park this afternoon and didn't see or hear any eagles. However, as I was standing at the top of the path up to the rock bluff, and watching the nest diligently, I did see some movement close to the big branch on the right of the nest. I took photos from that vantage point, and also fro...

Another great spot in Saanich where you can see many different species of birds and ducks is Swan Lake. There is a floating bridge across the lake and a wonderful nature house. More info here I visited Swan Lake on Mar. 14th and the Stellar's Jays were hopping along beside the path and making quite ...

Another favourite area I like to visit is King's Pond at the north end of the Cedar Hill Golf Course in Saanich. I visited on Mar. 14th and photographed some of the ducks and one American Coot.

Re: Swan Lake Eagles, Saanich BC - 2018 Season

I visited the nest site on Mar. 14th. The nest looked like there were some new sticks added recently. I saw
the eagles circling overhead but they were too far away to get a photo. They eventually disappeared from sight.
