Welcome to the Beacon Hill Park Eagles thread for the 2017/2018 season. This thread is dedicated to observations, photos, videos and discussion of the eagles who inhabit this nest in Beacon Hill Park, within the City of Victoria, BC. These eagles have been seen quite often perched atop the totem pole on the edge of the woodsy area of the park, near Dallas Rd. and Cook St. Over the years there have been several nests within the park and this past season the eagles produced one eaglet. Info on these eagles for previous years can be found here. Please feel welcome to post observations, photos and videos of these eagles in and around their nest area if you visit the park.

Friday Oct 13. Just a note to say that I have not seen an eagle atop the BHP totem pole yet. I will keep looking and hope for a sighting soon.

Thanks calypso for keeping watch. I strolled through Beacon Hill Park this afternoon and there was no evidence of eagles but it did look like the nest has had some nestoration.

I guess the pair must be back, although I have not seen them. They are displayed prominently in today's Times Colonist, sitting atop the lights at Ogden Point!

Thanks for that info calypso. We don't know for sure if the eagles would be from the nest in BH park. There has been a nest at Saxe Pt. Park for many years and I have been told there have been nests near the DND barracks at the end of Munro St. which is a very short distance from the cruise docks. Dunno I have photographed eagles on those light standards many times and just assumed they were from the BH nest.

Yes Calypso! We saw one on the totem pole today at about 4:00 p.m. I have some pix I will post later. And then as we were leaving we saw an incoming eagle and he/she perched in a tree below the totem pole. There was no kerfuffle so I am assuming the pair are back. Left thumb up
