White Rock, BC ~ Bald Eagle Nest

Click on image to download

This nest is located on private property in Surrey, BC

Two Axis 1346E fixed-focus high-definition cameras have been aimed at the eagle nest on the White Rock bluff overlooking Boundary Bay to the west of White Rock, on the south-west coast of beautiful British Columbia. There are infrared lights (eagles cannot see nor detect the infrared light, only the cameras can) so the nests will also be visible at night.

White Rock Nest

About the site

This is the latest nest location for what I called the old "Block Bros. nest territory" that twice had the nest removed to allow a subdivision. This nest is 500 yards to the south.
The best tree in a clump of fine Douglas fir was chosen to install a few key support branches in the hopes of enticing eagles to nest. The landowner, and longtime friend of mine, did everything hoped for -- according to the eagles -- and this season the old Block Bros. pair took up residence and built a fine nest in the modified tree. Two young will fledge this week.

Plans
The landowner couple love these eagles and will undertake the costs of cam installation and signal distribution and we will just have to provide the expertise. Done

Projected Costs
About $1000 to cover Ken's costs while we get this up and running


David's Comments
This is a very good option, and the landowner's support is a great bonus. This is a must as these birds feed at the entrance to the world's best bald eagle habitat -- Boundary Bay.
It is also along the north shore of Boundary Bay that the two Delta cam nests reside and the winter attraction of the Vancouver Landfill attracts up to 800 eagles daily.
Over 24 eagle nests border this Bay.

Very Happy Thanks for the heads up PEB. I logged into the great closeup cam around 10:30 am to find 1 eagle in the nest calling. Fly out at 10:43.
Sadly my connection with HWF is extremely slow so updates could be few and far between. This sighting was just so exciting! Wooh
