East Porpoise Bay Rd, Sechelt BC Eagles' Nest, by the Blue Heron sign, Sunshine Coast BC 2019

This nest was spied by our friend Angela last summer as we were driving underneath it while checking on juvies in our known nests. The number of times we have driven beneath it without knowing is incredible! It sits in a pine tree at the corner of East Porpoise Bay Rd and Delta, sharing the corner with the Blue Heron sign.
Through the years we have thought there must be a nest near there, often seeing couples perched in the area. Many years ago I had been told there was a nest "near The Blue Heron" but never found out where, near the Blue Heron until now!
Speaking with neighbours who live on Bandland there revealed that this has been an active nest for years. By the time we discovered it the eagles were not around.
I did see 2 in trees near where the nest tree is from across the top of Porpoise Bay, by the motel, in January.

I was back checking on the nest and activity March 5. One lovely big eagle was perched in a tree near the nest tree. No activity seen.

Thanks for setting up this new thread Sandra. Its very exciting to have a new nest on the Coast.

I have often seen eagles around this area from the end of Govt wharf in Sechelt and its great to now know where their nest is! I wish them both a successful season. At least they should have a quieter time this year now that most of the development around there is done :)

Nice to see you checked in here Heather. I am sad to say that I have yet to see activity at this nest. I've tried from various angles but have not seen any sign of life. I know how they can surprise us though! :luck:

I haven't seen them ether Sandra. :(

I often used to see them from the Porpoise Bay pier when they were perched across the bay but haven't seen them for a while. Perhaps there's just been too much development around there - fingers crossed for next season when hopefully it will be a bit quieter

I've continued checking as well, last time June 4. That townhouse development has been ongoing for years but perhaps the last part of it has come too close to the nest tree? Hard to say.

I was at the top of Porpoise Bay June 18, by the motel picnic table and decided to take a picture across the water of our nest tree area. Even though I haven't found an eagle when over there look who I found! :w00t:
