Welcome to the Henderson Nest thread for the 2017/2018 Season

If you visit the Henderson nest in Roberts Creek you are welcome to post comments and pictures here.

This nest was new to the forum in May 2016 though it has been active for several seasons before that. The nest is on private property but can be viewed from the beach. To view the nest, walk on to the beach from the Henderson & Beach Ave pull-out. Nest is visible to the west over 2nd house on the tree with severely broken top

  • 2016 - 1 eaglet Henderson, fledged on or before July 7
  • 2017 - 2 eaglets seen. 1 successful fledge on or before July 14. Sadly 1 eaglet was lost sometime in June. It may have been a fall from the nest or predation
  • 2018 - ???

I visited the Browning and Olave nests last Friday and was able to see one adult and a juvenile over in the Henderson territory.

Initially the juvenile was perched in the Browning territory quite close to me but after a while flew off and landed in the gnarly tree in the Henderson territory. He/she flew right over me so I got a good view of the pointy ends of the new feathers on the wings.

Here are some very fuzzy pictures of the juvenile and an adult way off in the distance in the Henderson territory. Smile The third pic is an extreme crop of the adult to just about show the white head. The adult was sitting way off in the distance - so far over that I did wonder if it was actually an adult from the next nest/territory at Margaret?

Great shots of the juvie! Nice to see one looking so healthy. As to which territory they were perched in, I guess we'll never know. Wooh

I got down to Henderson Beach yesterday, to find the nest looking good, Ma in her favourite perch tree between the nest tree and the water, and 3-4 Harlequin ducks diving. Welcome back Ma!

She spent a lot of time looking behind me but I could not see Pa perched anywhere.

Looking out over the water. She did not seem interested in the ducks diving nearby.
