Blenkinsop Eagles, Saanich BC - 2019/2020 Season

Post by sassyk » Sat Sep 28, 2019 7:00 pm

Welcome to the Blenkinsop Eagles thread for the 2019/2020 season. The eagles have been nesting on private property near Blenkinsop Lake for many years but the nest is not easy to view once the nest tree is in full foliage. The eagles have produced many eaglets over the years but unfortunately there are few photos of them available. The eagles can be seen perching in nearby trees and fishing at Blenkinsop Lake. They also perch in the trees along Blenkinsop Road near the Galey's Farm Market. Two eaglets from this nest sucessfully fledged at the end of this past season.

Observations and photos of these eagles from the past season can be viewed here.

I have been told that the nest the eagles have used for the past few years fell during the winter months. I viewed the area from Blekinsop Rd. yesterday and couldn't see any evidence of a new nest. However, there are a lot of Cottonwood trees in the area and the eagles could be using an old nest. Hopefully I will be able to have a good look soon.

My birding partner reported the eagles have built a new nest in their old nest tree.
