Marmot Road Bald Eagle Nest, Sechelt BC is a New Nest for this thread.

We first saw this nest in 2007 when HWF lunch Bunch group came to visit me. We visited my friends house where my friends viewed an eagles' nest from a skylight in their living room (Earl & I also saw this when we were visiting). While we were in the driveway looking at the tree one of the eagles returned from its summer holiday (right on the date it usually returned), we were all very thrilled to witness this. It seems that they didn't use that nest for a while they possibly went further into Porpoise Bay provincial park to build a new nest. I have been in touch with a friend who now lives in the house and she told me she has seen them for a few years. I have asked permission to post two pictures that she took and will post them when I receive them.

Unable to tell how many eaglets in recent years but the owner of the house has seen juvies around.

Here is a picture of the house I believe it is the second house from the end.

ADDED: Last year we heard that they had a nest in the Provincial Park stim found the nest but there were no eaglets last year.

Hi Heather, I have sent all the google nest maps on the Sunshine Coast to David Hancock and he is going to enter them on his large map. Smile
