Welcome to the Sidney Eagles--Photos & Comments From Ground Observers thread. This thread is dedicated to photos and observations of the Sidney Eagles and their eaglets, taken by members who visit the area around the Sidney nests. This dedicated thread is where you will find write-ups and current photos of our beloved Ma & Pa Sidney and their offspring, in and around their nests near Pat Bay. Please refrain from chatting on this thread and keep all discussion focused on posted photos & videos of Ma & Pa Sidney.

Many of the local members visit the area on a regular basis and are happy to share their experiences and photos here on this thread for everyone to enjoy. Current photos & videos of the Sidney eagles and their eaglets, as well as comments and questions regarding these photos & videos, are welcome on this thread. Please continue to use the Sidney-Victoria Eagles+Other Wildlife thread for posting older and enhanced photos of the Sidney eagles and other wildlife in the Pat Bay area.

The Sidney-Victoria Eagles+Other Wildlife thread is where local members have previously posted their comments and photos of Ma & Pa Sidney and their eaglets, and it is exciting to now have this new thread dedicated to photos of our beloved Sidney eagles and their eaglets. After 2 years of Ma & Pa Sidney successfully raising 3 eaglets in their new nest, we are looking forward to another exciting season in 2010 and lots of new photos of the Sidney eagle family.

Here is a current pic of Ma & Pa Sidney that I took on February 5th, perched in one of their favourite trees at the south end of their nest property. I know that elle and Ian are planning to visit Ma and Pa today and I look forward to seeing some fantastic photos here later.

Oh Kay thank you so much for this thread! Wub It's a great idea and I believe after reading your guidelines for here this should keep things clear if all material must be current and not from previous seasons. It will be awesome to be able to just know what's going on around the nest today, tomorrow, next week and nothing else.

I'm thrilled and have bookmarked it for many future visits. Titter

SassyKay--what a good idea for a special place for these special photos and observations of the eagles. I know when you are on the ground I always want to hear about it. Last year it got crazy when Tiny was out of the nest--I felt like I had to sift through all kinds of other stuff to find what you folks were reporting. Hope it works well. Thank You

Ian and I visited Ma and Pa today. It was a beautiful sunny warm afternoon and we got some pix and video which I will post here as soon as I can.
Ma and Pa are a very sweet and loving and happy couple. They were both squeaky clean after yesterday's rain. We will have an egg soon. WinkNodding yes
