One eagle in the top new nest at the Golf Course this morning. Could just barely see some white & some yellow beak through the sticks. Should be able to see eaglets in this nest well from Anderson Hill Left thumb up Did not see the other eagle. Will post a pic later.

The Fire Hall eagles are nesting in their old nest on York Place Oh My. They had been bringing sticks to the Fire Hall nest and eating in it but that's all they have done in that nest, according to the neighbors.

I generally do the tour of the Oak Bay nests every Friday afternoon and I was quite sure the Fire Halls were back at the York nest . I have to wonder why. The York nest is more private( for now anyway since the current undeveloped bucolic property where it is situated has been sold and will inevitably be built up with human residences) and that may very well be why but who knows. So many of our urban eagles have made nest changes in the last year and it is my opinion they are trying to regain a modicum of privacy.

My friend Marie saw the eagles from the Anderson Hill nest on one of the smaller islands behind Trial Island yesterday, on her way into the harbour on the whale watching boat. She also saw and photographed an eagle in the York Pl. nest over 2 weeks ago. So it seems the Fire Hall pair are incubating in that nest this year.

Here is a picture of the Oak Bay- York Place nest taken on Friday March 18-2016. Prior to this snap an adult was perched on the tall Sequoia across from the nest. He/she then flew to the nest but unfortunately I somehow missed the documentation Sad Nevertheless, this former FireHall Oak Bay pair are definitely nesting on York Place again.

And a Gonzales area mature Bald Eagle again. Not sure what to make of these sightings between Oak Bay and Victoria/Beacon Hill?

Marie has seen the Anderson Hill eagles sitting on the marker on Trial Isl. and on the smaller island, as well as in their perch tree. I think it's safe to assume they are not nesting this season. I'm not surprised after all the unsettling incidences at their nest last season Sad

Every time we do our drive by on Friday afternoons the two are always on Trial Island together. Usually perched next to each other on a rocky mound. I have only seen an adult in the perch tree on Anderson Hill once in the last month or so. There are no reports from my contact of any nest activity. I do think this might be a new pairing. It took a very long time for a reunion last fall and I fear the male from last year did not return.
