Welcome to the Royal Roads University Eagles thread for the 2015/2016 season. This nest is on the property of Royal Roads University in Colwood BC. These eagles have produced many eaglets over the years, and 2 eaglets successfully fledged last season. Info and photos of these eagles can be found on the previous years' thread here. Please feel welcome to post your observations, photos and videos of these eagles when you visit their nest area.

I was at Esquimalt Lagoon Fri. Sept. 11th and took a pic of the nest tree, hoping there had been no damage during that fierce wind storm we experienced here. The nest looks intact, but will sure need some nestorations done when the eagles return Left thumb up

I went to Royal Roads today and the nest looks OK from the road. Did not see or hear the eagles anywhere in the area or at Esquimalt Lagoon.

There were lots of feathers and bones on the ground at the base of the nest tree.

I visited the nest area yesterday. This is a very difficult nest to see, especially if you are short like me. I was wandering down the road, going from one side to the other to try and get a hole through the branches and leaves. One adult was in the nest calling and a short while later the other adult flew in. They were both panting as it was very hot and both were being vocal. Later I observed the nest from Esquimalt Lagoon and saw a juvenile soaring around over the nest area. One adult had left the nest but returned a few minutes later, landing at the top of the nest tree. The other adult was perched on the edge of the nest feeding young.
Adult just landed on the nest.
