Chapman Nest

Welcome to the 2018/2019 Season!

The Chapman nest is located on Highway 101.

Welcome to this thread. Please stop by and say "Hi" if you visit the Chapman nest you are welcome to post comments and pictures here.

We see these eagles fly over our house and head down to the nest which isn't far from the water. We have walked along the rocky beach to view this nest but we also saw it from the Highway which is much easier!

2011, 2012 and 2013 unable to confirm if there were any eaglets
2014 - 2 eaglets fledged
2015 - 2 eaglets fledged
2016 - we believe one eaglet was at this nest this season
2017 - one eaglet believed to have fledged
2018 - possibly one eaglet

Picture of the nest.

The last 2 times I have driven to Sechelt I have seen who looks like a male eagle perched. The first time was in the usual perch tree for this time of year, at the house with the fence on the left as one leaves Davis Bay and starts to climb the hill. On Monday, April 1 it was in a tree at the bottom of the hill, water side of the road, before one leaves Davis Bay on the way to Sechelt. Both sightings made me think it could be the Chapman male as part of nest duty. :luck:

I also spotted a male perched in the old perch tree by Beach Hideaway this week, opposite end of the territory.

This morning we saw one eagle fly over our house quite low and a little later another mature eagle flew by going in the same direction probably heading for the Chapman nest.

I will check with someone who lives close to this nest to see if they saw any eaglets this past season I suspect there was one or maybe two. It is a difficult to get to view the tree/nest I am unable to do go there. I plan to keep this thread open and add to it.

This will be the start of the 2019-2020 season.

I'm glad you've seen these eagles Marg. I look at the perch tree just your side of Davis Bay that Pa used the past couple of years but have yet to see him. :(

Sandra, I believe they use a tree near the nest close to where Ian lives and also the tree where you see one. :)

Wow! We are so lucky we got our eagle fix this morning (sitting in our living room) seeing not one but two eagles fly over the roof of our house. They were the Chapman pair we see them fly over quite often. :woohoo:
