Located in Strathcona Park in Vancouver BC. There are two nests. They have been in the park for at least a couple of years, But I don't really know the history very well. Here's a link to the discussion on the old forum.

Dropped by again this morning to confirm the nest is definitely active. I could just see the top of the head of the eagle in the nest. The second was in the nest two trees west of the nest tree. He flew away after I got a couple of quick photos. I missed the takeoff.

Here's a map to the nest location.

Dropped in today to check on the Strathcona nest around noon. The eagle was sitting on the nest a little higher today, so it was easy to see the head. But it was raining, so I didn't take any pictures. The 2nd of the pair wasn't in the area.

Stopped in on the way home from work. Just in time to catch both of the adults in the nest having a snack. Grabbed the tripod, and my point and shoot and got some video. Just uploading them to YouTube, then I'll add some links.
Anyone know how to embed them rather than just showing the links?

Dropped by the nest after work this evening. Around 4:30pm. The pair were sitting together about 3 trees east of the nest. Didn't go to the nest in the 10 minutes I was there. Hopefully they were just teaching the eaglets to be comfortable alone. (couldn't see any eaglets in the nest, but spoke with a woman who claims she can hear them.)

Great shots, Thanks for the confirmation. I wasn't able to get out at all this weekend. It's good that we have more than one person watching each nest.

And here's another one from Martin Passchier that was taken on April 6, 2010 that somehow didn't get posted! Sorry about that Martin, I don't know how I missed it! :oops:
