We have 3 active nests (hoping that the Marsh eagles rebuild their nest). I will be listing the Marsh, Stalashen and Chaster nests on separate threads this year and any new nests we find as it will be easier to find them.

SEPTEMBER 30, 2015

WELCOME TO THE 2015/2016 SEASON!

Welcome to this thread for the MARSH NEST

Please stop by and say "Hi" if you visit the Marsh nest in Sechelt you are welcome to post comments and pictures here. We have been following this nest since 2012 it was "spotted" by Larry, urbanEagle when a group of HWF members were visiting Sechelt.

Nest in Sechelt:

1. Marsh Nest

2012 - 2 eaglets seen in July
2013 - 2 eaglets seen named Sea and Shell
2014 adult spotted Jan 3. 2 eaglets seen.
Nest was blown down during a storm July 2 eaglets fledged.
2015 January 27, I saw a new nest and we have pictures!
2015 - 2 eaglets, branched fledged. Nest collapsed before they had fledged.
The eaglets were named by our member Aspen's children... Chase & Sky!

Pic of the Marsh Nest this nest is difficult to see. Unfortunately, the nest blew down this year we are hoping that the eagles will rebuild.

Sunday, I went to the Sechelt Marsh to see if there were any eagles around but I didn't see any and there was no sign of a nest being rebuilt in the tree. Sad

What a wonderful fall day today, perfect to get out to visit some of our nesting spots. I also saw no eagles at the marsh site, but caught a picture of this pigeon with quite the updo to his feathers. It was not windy at all.

Here is a picture of the nest tree with no sign of nest building having taken place. Sad

Another visit to the marsh yesterday shows no sign of nest building. Cry Nor were any eagles seen where they like to perch.
However, an adult eagle was perched in stand of trees the Porpoise Bay adults like to use. Picture taken from the parking lot by the Marsh nest.

I've wondered if this pigeon who shares the marsh shores with our eagle family would find another to mate with.

Yesterday I spotted this one, seemingly a cross between the 2 breeds. Clapping

This pigeon with the updo still has feathers in the upward swoop at the back of its head. I assume it is not a mating display. click bigger x 2
