Welcome to the Lochside Eagles thread for the 2014//2015 season. The nest is on private property on Lochside Drive which runs parallel to the Pat Bay Highway on the Saanich Peninsula. The Lochside Drive eagles have successfully fledged many eaglets during the past few years. The adult eagles from this nest are often seen perched in the tall trees along Lochside Drive near their nest, as well as in trees along James Island Road. Information and photos of these eagles can be found in the previous years' thread here. Please feel welcome to post your observations and photos of these eagles whenever you visit their nest area.

I noticed when we drove by last week the perch tree by the water's edge on the property has been topped. This was a favourite place for them to fish.

The perch tree has been like that for quite some time; I thought at the time I saw it that the top had broken off Sad

I did a tour of the nests on the peninsula this afternoon and saw both eagles from the Lochside nest; one perched at each end of Cy Hampson Park. They were calling back and forth to each other and one flew towards the middle of the park, circled around a couple of trees then landed. It was the female and quite a bit bigger than the male. It kept looking down and squawking and I thought it had probably spotted ducks on the beach. One lady thought it was trying to pick up her small dog and another fellow I chatted with, who I haven't seen for 20 years, said he has seen the eagles there swooping down when there are small dogs running around Oh My I saw a hawk flying towards one end of the park and a few seconds later the eagle in the tree in the middle flew after it. I left the park and drove towards the area where the eagle had flown to and it was perched in a tree at the end of a side street. When I passed by the park again on my way home it was back at the top of the tree in the middle and the male was on the branch overlooking the beach at the end closest to their nest tree. I'll post some pics later.
