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

Post by sassyk » Sun Sep 22, 2019 3:51 pm

Welcome to the Saxe Pt. Park Eagles thread for the 2019/2020 season. This thread is for observations, photos, videos and discussion of the eagles who inhabit this nest in Saxe Pt. Park within the Municipality of Esquimalt in BC. These eagles also spend time at the other end of Munro Street at Fleming Beach/Buxton Green and Macaulay Point. Sadly the eagles did not produce any young this past season. Please feel welcome to post your photos and observations of the Saxe Pt. Park eagles when you visit their nest area.

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.

A few sticks have been added to their nest. Photo taken from the top of the beach.

I went to the park this afternoon, hoping to see the eagles. They were not in the park but I spotted one at the top of their perch tree on Plaskett Place, which is a block down the road from the park. When I got out of my vehicle I could see only the one eagle at the top of the tree but when I crossed the road I saw the second one down lower in the tree.

This photo was taken from the other side of the tree.
