Welcome to the Beacon Hill Park Eagles thread for the 2015/2016 season. This thread is dedicated to observations and photos of the eagles who inhabit a nest in Beacon Hill Park, in the City of Victoria, BC. Over the years there have been several nests in the park and sadly last season the eagles did not produce any eaglets. Info on these eagles for previous years can be found here. Please feel welcome to post observations, photos and videos of the Beacon Hill Park eagles in and around their nest area if you visit the park.

I spent a bit of time at the park this afternoon; no sightings of the eagles yet.

I was at the park for awhile this afternoon but did not see or hear any eagles in the area Sad

I have seen and reported what appeared to be a juvie atop the totem pole a few times. For some reason my posts did not "take".

Nothing since Christmas, though. The sightings were in November and December.

calypso I was away from Oct. 28th until Dec. 20th so I wouldn't have seen your posts. I have no idea what might have happened to them but thanks for letting us know. I'm wondering if the juvie might be one of their offspring from a couple of years ago. Was it all dark brown feathers or did it have some lighter colored feathers?

I seem to recall seeing those posts, calypso. I have no idea what might have happened to them.
Like you, I visit the park regularly but don't report every time if there is nothing to report. I will be there today actually so if I see something I will let you know.

As fate and Murphy's Law would have it, I should have taken my camera with me today.
We drove to and parked in James Bay and walked across the park with Cook St Village as our destination. The peacocks around the Cameron Bandshell were displaying to the peahens already. A bit early ?
Nothing around the nest tree but directly across and next to the public washrooms there was a seagull carcass on the ground and a plethora of feathers were strewn far and wide.
On our way back we took the Dallas Road route and there atop a tree next to the Totem Pole a mature Bald Eagle was proudly perched ! There may be hope for a nest here after all.
