Welcome to the Oak Bay Eagles thread for the 2017/2018 season. There are 4 nests within the Municipality of Oak Bay, known as the Fire Hall, Golf Course, Anderson Hill and Uplands (aka Lansdowne) nests, that have been monitored by the locals for many years. The Fire Hall nest produced two eaglets this past season as did the Uplands nest but the Golf Course and Anderson Hill nests did not produce any young. During past years, the eagles in these nests have produced many young and we look forward to a successful season for all of these eagles. Information and photos from past seasons can be found here. Please feel welcome to post your observations, photos and videos of the eagles that inhabit these nests if you visit their nest area.

On Monday this past week we kayaked the Oak Bay shoreline from Cattle Point to Ten Mile Point, around Cadboro Bay past Upland and back. We could see the Uplands nest clearly. It is certainly a different vantage from the waterside.
We also drove around to all the various known nests in Oak Bay. There is no evidence of Bald Eagle returns yet but all of the nests look ripe for a bit of renovation and upkeep.
We hope for a successful return and season to come.
