Victoria/Sidney Nest - Chicks Getting Bigger Daily

Victoria/Sidney NestThe new nest site on Vancouver Island, at Victoria/Sidney, has produced a couple of fat and sassy eaglets.

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.

For more information and background, visit the Vancouver/Sidney Eagle Nest forum topic

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.

Thanks so much for giving me the chance to "spy" on these gorgeous birds. I've shared the site with many friends and we're all pulling for the two of them who've been named Perky and Pinky.

Again thanks for all your hard work,

I am happy that some people are able to view the nest. I can't seem to get a picture I keep trying and trying. It searches the media and then Buffers up to 40 or 50 percent and then quits and I try and try again. Sometimes I get just a flash of the nest and then it goes blank. I can't believe that some people as I read in the forums can watch for hours at a time.

I am a teacher. This site is so popular in our district that we have been slowing down our network.
Some of us non-tech folks left it streaming on our computer for the students to watch.
We have now been told to log in and out for only a few minutes at a time. LOL
What an AWESOME site! Thank you.

I am also a teacher -sixth grade in Northern California. We live in a rich wildlife
area, but eagles are a real treat.. The kids are enthralled with their new
"classmates", whom we have named Barney and Betty. We think the bigger,
darker one is a male, and the smaller, downier one a female. The live cam is fed
to our classroom TV so everyone can watch, and we're even "quiet" while the
chicks are sleeping! Thank you, thank you, thank you, for bringing the natural
world into my classroom!

In this world of craziness & uncertainty I can't find a more refreshing way of clearing one's mind to the possibility that this is all you have to know! I've learned by watching these Eagles and their Eaglets, the lessons of life can be learned from these parents. They show me such intelligence & strength, caring for their two offspring, this indeed is a wonderful opportunity to see what we all should be!
Thank you so much,

Since I was turned onto the first nest (the nest with the infertile eggs) I have seen quite a few web cams of Eagles all around the country, even a few other species of birds. But, I have to say, I am quite attatched to these 2 chicks for some reason, I feel as if they are in my own back yard.

Looks as if there is, I've been trying to see them since about midday 6th(Australian time we are 15 hours ahead of you :) ) first thing this morning all was fine but it was very very windy up on the nest.

Lets hope everything is OK.

So does anyone know, has Mom and Dad left the chicks already? I have been watching on and off today but haven't seen any feeding frenzie. When is the expected fly date? Will they leave and not return the first time they fly out of the nest? This is such an awesome site, Thanks for letting me share this experience.
