Re: Saxe Pt. Park Eagles, Esquimalt BC - 2019/2020 Season

I spent some time in the park today. I didn't see or hear the eagles anywhere in the area but there was quite a bit of whitewash on the side of the path near their nest tree. IMG_5708 - Copy.JPG A few sticks have been added to their nest. Photo taken from the top of the beach. IMG_5709 - Copy.JPG Ph...

Re: Oak Bay Eagles, Oak Bay BC - 2019/2020 Season

The nest behind the Fire Hall is intact. We are skeptical they will use this nest in the spring next year due to having lost their eggs or eaglets in an attack by an intruder this past spring. These first 2 photos were taken from in front of the Fire Hall. IMG_5654 - Copy.JPG IMG_5655 - Copy.JPG Thi...

I did a tour of the nests on the Saanich Peninsula yesterday. There were no eagles seen or heard and the winery was closed. After 2 seasons with no eaglets, I'm hoping the eagles will produce some young this season. This is still my favourite nest :)
