This nest is about 105 feet up a fir tree, on private property overlooking Tsawwassen Beach, and the Georgia Strait beyond, where it is ideal for easy access to the productive Roberts Bank rich intertidal beaches.

This pair have occupied this nest for three years - raising two eaglets each of the last two years. They previously nested in three different nests in the Heron Rookery nearby.

Delta 3 Cam Installations: Sept 15, 2014:
David Hancock

The Hancock Wildlife Foundation team of installers placed two new PTZ cams at our latest bald eagle nest called Delta 3. The site is spectacular. It overlooks the Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal offering this pair of eagles, and a shoreline of adjacent territory pairs, access to the productive Roberts Bank rich intertidal beaches.

This site has been occupied successfully for two years, producing 2 young each year. I believe this pair, or at least one of them, occupied the 3 different nests just northward 200 meters around the point and situated within the largest known Great Blue Heron rookery. The bay below is rich all spring and early summer with spawning Midshipman a toadfish, a little bull-head-like species so important to many breeding eagles up the entire west coast.

This beach last year again, after years of absence, supported a small spawn of Herring -- an iconic food species for so many creatures of the Pacific Ocean. Along this western shore of Point Roberts we have 8 or 9 pairs of nesting eagles. The area is so rich in food it also supports a floating population of up to 50 non-breeding eagles, particularly sub-adults most of the year. This results in lots of interaction with the shoreline of breeders who also compete for spacial rights with the adjacent pairs.

We hope this pair will enable some locals and you to learn more of this great predator-scavenger. Since we have two more PTZ cams we will be able to offer more people the opportunity to take turns in panning, tilting and zooming these cams -- to find the most exciting views and actions.

We thank the family, Tom, Jodie and their three children, for their interest and support. We hope you too will gain insight into the lives of the eagles that have invaded your landscape.

In the background was Ken, our technician, bringing it all together along with Karen and Mary feeding us, and the host family cheering and encouraging us on. The project was a wonderful start to a new pair of eagles which we hope you will all come to love and respect.

Hi everyone!

Thanks, Pat, for all the great information! I do hope that I'll be able to see this nest live and in person one of these years!

I was really hoping that I'd be able to announce the the cams were live - but so far only the East cam is streaming. I've sent an email to Peter at WildEarth, and am keeping fingers crossed that both will be online tomorrow.

I didn't see anyone at home this afternoon - but do know they are visiting, so hope we'll see both eagles checking in soon.

Added - as those who know me know - I'm always optimistic - so links for both cams are available on our Live Cams page.... Smile
