Swan Lake Eagles, Saanich BC - 2019/2020 Season

Post by sassyk » Thu Sep 26, 2019 12:18 pm

Welcome to the Swan Lake Eagles thread for the 2019/2020 season. The eagles had a nest near Swan Lake for many years but that nest fell down a few years ago. They have recently built a new nest in a tree on private property near their old nest but have not produced any eaglets in this new nest. Hopefully they will have better luck next spring.

Please feel free to post your observations and photos here if you visit their nest area.

Observations and photos from previous seasons can be viewed here.

One of the eagles was perched in their old nest tree on 22 Oct. I stopped to take a few photos before going to Swan Lake. The first 2 photos were taken from the end of the dead end lane behind the old nest tree.

Their nest is intact but I haven't seen either of the eagles nestorating.

One of the eagles was perched in the old nest tree on 2 Nov. but I didn't stop to take a photo. This photo was taken from the floating boardwalk at Swan Lake. The eagle was still on the same branch preening when I drove by on my way home.
