Marigold Park Eagles, Saanich BC - 2018 Season

Post by sassyk » Sun Mar 04, 2018 12:39 pm

Welcome to the Marigold Park Eagles thread for the 2018 season. The eagles had been nesting in Marigold Park for a few years prior to my learning about them in 2013. They had produced many eaglets prior to January of 2016 when part of their nest blew down. The eagles had been around the park area rebuilding their nest but sadly in March of 2016 the nest tree blew down in a wind storm.

In 2017 the eagles took over a Red-tailed Hawk nest on private property near the park but did not produce any young last season. Unfortunately the nest is not visible from the park; however, my contact has seen and heard the eagles in the trees in the park. Hopefully the eagles will decide to use the nest this year and produce offspring.

My contact has confirmed that the eagles are not nesting this season. They are still seen and heard in the park, defending their territory.

In view of the fact that the eagles did not return to the park to nest after their nest tree fell down, I will not be opening a new thread for the coming season. If the eagles do return to the park and build a new nest I will open a new thread.
