Start of the new Season!

Welcome to this thread. If you visit the Stalashen nest in Sechelt you are welcome to post comments and pictures here.

Earl & I have been watching this nest in Sechelt from our living room, through a telescope and binoculars. The nest is located at the corner of Stalashen Drive and Titalshen Avenue. We have been following this nest since 2008. When we first started reporting on the nest we had talked to a few of the people living close to the nest and they said that it has been there over 20 years. Unfortunately, it did blow down in July 2009 after a windstorm but we are happy to tell you that the eagles built a new nest. When the nest blew down one of the eaglets had branched and the 2nd one was fine also, the eagles fed them on a branch before they fledged. We look through our telescope at this nest which is about a mile and a half away. We can only see them clearly in the morning or evening due to the glare from the water and thermal interference.

Added July 16, 2017. Sandra was told by neighbours that this nest is 50 yrs. old (could even be older than that even) when his wife moved there she was 1 she's now 51.


2009 - 2 eaglets not named. Fledged.
2010 - 1 eaglet Sunny. Fledged.
2011 - 1 eaglet Bluster June 21 Bluster branched. Fledged.
2012 - 1 eaglet Pacer June 27 Pacer branched. Fledged.
2013 - 1 eaglet Hydan June branched. Fledged.
2014 - 2 eaglets branched ..... Fledged July 16.
2014 - Sep 28, 5:50pm Ma/Pa Stalashen back!
2015 - 2 eaglets branched.......Fledged
2015 - Sep 30 Ma/Pa returned.
2016 - 1 eaglet, Orel fledged June 28.
2016 - Sep 19 one eagle returned.
2017 - Two eaglets branched one fledged June 30 2017 the other one a few days later.
2017 - Oct. 1 Ma or Pa returned.
2018 - sadly 2 eaglets hatched but did not make it......
2019 - One eaglet this year and it branched/fledged.

2019 This year thankfully one eaglet fledged! :D

2018 At the beginning of this season we thought that there were 2 eaglets in this nest but on May 19 we could only see one eaglet through the telescope. We don't know what happened but what was believed to be an eagle wing was found on the ground by two of our members Karen H and Aspen. Karen H stated "At the time we didn't know if it was from the missing eaglet or another bird". As stated on the thread I contacted Gibsons Wildlife but they had not had any report of an eaglet found on the ground.
2018 - September 18 Ma or Pa returned (I assume it is one of them)...

Yesterday I observed Ma/Pa in the nest tree at the top. I do believe we'll have an eaglet or two. :) Earl at a different time saw them both (in a different area) but engaging in the same activity.

Today we saw them both in the nest tree and earlier one was in the nest tree on a branch and the other in the perch tree.
