At last here's the story about the Sidney eagles that ran in the Sidney, BC newspaper last month. We had been told it had not been publshed. Sorry about that. I added the emphasis about the eagle behavior if we go into a nest for whatever reason when the eagles are present.
The Peninsula’s most popular Internet couple are off the air this year. Ma and Pa Sidney, whose North Saanich nest scene streamed live for the past few years, moved 200 yards away – off Epicure land.
“We told people they would probably move. Every nest we’ve ever been into, when the eagles are present, … every single one abandon it the next year,” said David Hancock of Hancock Wildlife Foundation.
