Welcome to our nest. It sits on private property between Mabel Rd and 9th St to the left off Gower Point Rd as you leave Gibsons. Please post any pictures or information you wish to share if you visit here.
As one leaves the Chaster Beach area towards Gibsons Mabel Rd is only the second street to the right along Gower Point Rd. The 2 territories must be side by side. I would say there is a good chance that the Larson Rd. nest territory could abut on the other side.
The nest can be seen from the top of 9th St. or the bottom of Mabel Rd or along Ocean Beach Esplanade on the waterfront.
I was told by a neighbour who has lived there for 5 years that the nest was in use when she got there.
Last summer I was informed that 2 youngsters had safely fledged, were scavenging on the beach.
This year we spied 2 eaglets in the nest until June 29. After that the nest seemed to slowly slip away until the lone eaglet was found branching in the nest tree with hardly any nest left on July 26.

2016...2 eaglets fledged
2017...2 eaglets to start but as of the end of June only 1 was observed, branching by the end of July with hardly any nest left in the tree. Sad
