Willis Point Eagles, North Saanich, BC - 2019/2020 Season

Post by sassyk » Wed Sep 25, 2019 12:12 pm

Welcome to the Willis Point Eagles thread for the 2019/2020 season. This is an established nest that I viewed for the first time in April of 2018 and the only info I have is that it was built after the eagles' previous nest tree blew down. It is in the Willis Point area of North Saanich, BC. There was 1 eaglet in this nest this past season, and it fledged successfully. Please feel welcome to post observations, photos and videos of this eagle family if you visit their nest area.

Observations and photos of these eagles for the past seasons can be viewed here and here.

I did a tour of the nests on the Saanich Peninsula yesterday. The nest is still intact, with the plastic sheet ripped to shreds and hanging from the nest.

One of the eagles was perched near the nest tree.

I visited the nest area yesterday and was pleased to see an adult perched in a tree near the road. I did not see or hear anything in the nest and didn't see any new sticks in the nest. I stayed only long enough to take a couple of photos. All of that white plastic material has been hanging from the nest for a couple of years.
