Stalashen Nest

We have been watching this nest in Sechelt from our living room, through a telescope and binoculars. My husband saw that the nest was being used several years ago but we didn't see the eagles there again until 2008. We have been following it ever since. We have talked to a few of the people living close to the nest and they said that it has been there over 20 years. Unfortunately, it did blow down in July 2009 after a windstorm but we are happy to tell you that the eagles have built a new nest. :clap2:In 2009 there were 2 eaglets.

Here are a few pics that I took through our telescope, the nest is about a mile and a half away. There are 2 eagles in it. I have to stand on a stool and hold my camera against the eyepiece. Titter Rolling on floor laughing

We can only see them clearly in the morning or evening due to the glare from the water and thermal interference.

These are the branches that the eagles "dumped" as they didn't want them for their nest.

This shot was taken November 27, 2009 - both eagles in the nest tree.

Sandra (stim) and husband Dave visited the nests with us on January 9, 2010 and Dave got the GPS reading - Thanks DaveGrin:

It was a thrill to view both eagles and the nest through Marg's telescope after seeing her pictures posted here. On leaving the house we returned to the nest to get a GPS reading: Lat 49.4380*N, Long 123.7186*W, Alt 13 ft. Dave tried getting a picture with that but dusk was starting to fall and it wasn't bright enough. Another time!
Thank you Marg and Earl! Looking forward to more outings together.
Sandra
