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

I went to the park for awhile early this afternoon; I stayed longer than I had planned :roll: After many trips back and forth to the nest and up and down the paths, and not seeing any movement in the nest, I was going to leave. I stopped to talk with a fellow who said he has seen the eagles coming b...

Re: Swan Lake Eagles, Saanich BC - 2018 Season

Some photos of the eagles taken yesterday. I believe this one is the female. She had just jumped up on the branch above the nest. The other eagle was in the nest eating.

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.

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

I went to the park this afternoon to see if the eagles were around the nest but didn't see or hear them. It was windy and cold so one of them could have been down in the nest. I'll have a close look at my photos later. I can see some dark and white feathers through the nest sticks in my photos but n...
