Lochside Eagles, Central Saanich, BC - 2019/2020 Season

Post by sassyk » Wed Sep 25, 2019 12:58 pm

Welcome to the Lochside Eagles thread for the 2019/2020 season. The nest is on private property on Lochside Drive which runs parallel to the Pat Bay Highway on the Saanich Peninsula and is easily viewed from the side of the road. The eagles have successfully fledged many eaglets in past years. Sadly the eagles did not produce any young this past season. The eagles are often seen perched in tall trees along Lochside Drive near their nest, as well as in trees at the waters edge in Cy Hampson Park, a short distance down the road towards the Town of Sidney. They often hunt in the big fields across the road. Please feel welcome to post your observations, photos, videos and discussion of these eagles whenever you visit their nest area.

Observations and photos of these eagles from past seasons:

I did a tour of the nests on the Saanich Peninsula yesterday. The nest is still intact but no eagles were seen or heard in the area.

I have driven by the nest area several times in the past few weeks but still no sightings of the eagles.
