Re: Glacier Gardens Eagles, Juneau Alaska - 2019 Season

Journi thanks so much for your dedication to watching these eagles and for all your wonderful s'caps. I love the ones of the eaglets huddling together. There doesn't seem to be much bonking anymore :woohoo: I tried to upload this video last night of Mama bringing the plastic bags to the nest but wa...

Re: Southern Vancouver Island Wildlife - 2018/2019 Season

I had fun watching the Purple Martins at Goldstream Marina yesterday. There were at least 30 adults and approx. 10 young ones flying. The volunteers for the BC Purple Martin Recovery Program had been there on Sunday counting the birds and checking the nest boxes. I couldn't keep track of them; they ...

Re: Metchosin, Westshore and Sooke Bald Eagles- 2018-2019 Season

I visited the Farhill Rd. eagles yesterday. We did not see or hear either of the adults in the area. The eaglet has branched and was perched on a branch beside the nest. It was partially hidden by the leaves and I wasn't able to capture a photo of the entire eaglet. We tried a few different vantage ...

Re: Royal Roads Eagles, Colwood BC - 2018/2019 Season

I was at Esquimalt Lagoon yesterday and took a few photos of the eagle nest tree. I did not see or hear the adults but did hear an eaglet calling once. I think one of the 3 eaglets was lying down in the nest. I caught a glimpse of movement using my binoculars but didn't catch it in a photo. The eagl...

It was having a nap for the first 15 minutes then decided to get up and stretch its wings. It did not do any flapping but di...
