This thread is dedicated to the comments and pictures of the bald eagle nest in Richmond, BC located at the south end of No. 3 Road beside the dike on the Fraser River.

I don't have a histroy on this pair but hopefully will find out more as the season progresses.

The eagles are back this year and have been seen in the nest and on their perch tree. Hopefully, they are planning on having a family.

We may have some action at the #3 Road nest!

I went to the doggie park on #3 Road with my friends in Richmond today. The last two times I was there, niether of the eagles were around but today one was sitting in the perch tree. My friends told me that they had seen the two of them together last a couple of weeks ago working on the nest. I took a couple of pictures of him/her and carried on to the end of the walk and back.

Just as I was about to leave I decided to take a picture of the empty nest to see if any new work had been done on the nest. When I got home and uploaded my pictures, look at what I found!

I can't be sure it is the second eagle because the first one had disappeared by the time we got back and it could very well be the same one, but he/she sure looks settled in and comfortable! Talons crossed!

Thanks, Kay! Thank You We're keeping our fingers crossed there are egg(s)!

The light wasn't great and I had to crop the heck out of the pics in order to see the eagles! I was quite a ways away from the tree and nest. Unfortunately, if you get too close to the nest tree the angle changes and you can't see if there is anything in the nest! I got lucky today!

Gemini,

Absolutely lovely photos. The one of Mount Baker is beautiful Left thumb up.

I hope things go well with the nest!

Cheers,

Bret
