This thread is for ground observations and pictures of Bald Eagle nests in the Westshore/Metchosin/Sooke areas which are located 30- 45 minutes west of Victoria.
There are several nests in this area that have been successful in raising young over the past 4 or 5 years.

I visited the Farhill Rd. nest today; both nests are intact. Did not see or hear the resident eagles but there was a sub-adult flying around the nest area and the beach at Albert Head.

Nest the eagles used last season.

I visited the nest near Langford Lake today; did not see or hear any eagles in the area. The nest looks like it will need a lot of nestorating.

We stopped for a bit of a hike in nature yesterday with visiting company from the mainland and saw 3 bald eagles at Wittys Lagoon. A pair and a solitaire. Pix to come.

A new season begins. These two had just mated before this picture was taken this afternoon.

I visited the Metchosin area eagle nests yesterday. No action at the Farhill/Park Rd. nests. I had a nice chat with the new owner of the 2nd nest property on Park Rd.; they moved in last Sept. and haven't seen any eagles in the area since then. I gave him some info re Wild ARC, Hancock Wildlife and previous years' activities in the nests; he was very interested and appreciated the info.

Some pics of the nest they used last season, taken from different vantage points. Couldn't see any evidence of new sticks in the nest and the nest looks smaller.
