The new camera was installed the first week of May, and shows the two eaglets in the nest in a Gary Oak tree on the Saanich Penninsula near Victoria International Airport. We'll bring you updates and more background information as they grow and mature. In the mean time you can watch them yourself at the Hancock Wildlife Video site.

Update - May 31 - about 2PM PDT: The camera angle has been changed (crane boom moved right and camera panned back to show more of the area behind the main trunk) and been zoomed out to allow us to see more of the nest now that the chicks are bigger and roaming around the nest more.
The chicks are getting bigger all the time - feeding every couple of hours on various menus brought to them by mom and dad.
