Re: Deep Cove Winery Eagles, North Saanich BC - 2017/2018 Season

I've heard from Elyse at the winery on the activities of the eagles. They have been very active and very loud in recent weeks, but they have not noticed them staying in the nest consistently. She said she would be very surprised if there were eggs in the nest. These eagles have been later than most ...

I got very emotional (actually shed a few tears) at seeing another eagle incubating in Ma's nest :brknhrt: I hope she is not suffering somewhere and if she has passed away, I know her spirit will always be soaring over the Pat Bay area.

Re: Blenkinsop Eagles, Saanich BC - 2018 Season

I visited the nest area today and when we arrived both eagles were in the current nest. One flew out before I could get a photo but I did get one of it soaring over the field. The 2nd eagle was in the nest the entire time and was obviously incubating. I'll be back with some photos.
