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

In 2006 when I started watching these eagles, they had a huge nest at the end of a stand of Cottonwood trees on Wallace Drive.

Makali'i wanders out of the nest (#1) and picks at the grass. Eventually decided the leaf wasn't worth eating and dropped it.

Looking around the forum and seeing members' user names below their avatars, I'm assuming the color coding has something to do with each group/title. If I am correct about this, I have to say that I certainly don't like the pink; I would much prefer a blue :)
