The Chapman nest is located on Highway 101.

Welcome to this thread.

Please stop by and say Hi. If you visit the Chapman nest you are welcome to post comments and pictures here.
We see these eagles fly over our house and head down to the nest which isn't far from the water. We have walked along the rocky beach to view this nest but we also saw it from the Highway which is much easier!
Here is a picture of the nest that I took in 2010.

We believe these are Ma/Pa Chapman as they perch near us and fly down to the nest and return later in the day until brooding begins.
We can observe these trees from our driveway.

Yesterday, I saw my friend who lives two houses away from the Chapman nest (on the waterfront) he told me that he saw Ma and Pa mating. He also said that he saw one of the eagles eating a fish on the dock then the other eagle had its turn. There has been a seal and a sea lion swimming in the area.

My friend's wife mentioned that she saw two juvies last season 2015 flying around in the Chapman nest area so it seems that there were two eaglets last season.

Mr. SC and I will be going down to look at the nest soon.

We see them fly down but Kay it is a very difficult nest to observe. We (stim, hubby, Mr SC and I) walked on the rocky beach one time but it is hazardous and when you go down to the Highway it is dangerous with the traffic flying by quite close to where you stand.Don't Panic Our friends took us from their house one day and we viewed the nest away from the road. He gave permission for us to go with Sandra and David while he was away (which we did). Grin

Sandra:
I think he meant they ate the fish on a float, I believe near where his house is. I see I used the word dock in my post sorry.......
