WELCOME 2012 SEASON!

Welcome to this thread. Most of the pictures posted early on were of Ma & Pa Stalashen and their offspring but we have discovered other nests so pictures/comments are posted of them.

Please stop by and say Hi. If you visit any of the nests in Sechelt you are welcome to post comments and pictures here.



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. When the nest blew down one of the eaglets had branched and the 2nd one was fine also, the eagles fed them on a branch before they fledged.Clapping
2009 there were 2 eaglets.
2010 1 eaglet "Sunny"
2011 1 eaglet "Bluster"
2012 1 eaglet "Pacer"

Here are a few pics that I took through our telescope, the nest is about a mile and a half away.

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

Hi Tina Welcome to the 2012 season! Yes, we hope that all nests on HWF have Egg hatch:Egg hatch: maybe 3 Egg hatch: eggs this year.Grin

We saw 2 eagles in this tree driving by but on our return only one eagle was there. I believe they were from the Shoreline Nest.

Sorry, not good quality - pics taken from a distance and the weather wasn't great. 2:01p.m.
