Welcome to the Browning Rd nest thread for the 2016/2017 Season

If you visit the Browning Rd nest in Wilson Creek you are welcome to post comments and pictures here.

The nest is registered with the Wildlife Tree Stewardship Program ref # BAEA-205-004.

This nest was new to the forum in July 2016 though the nest has been occupied for at least 26 years. The nest is on private property but can be viewed from the beach and from the trail to the beach. To view the nest, find the Paul Beach entrance about half way along Browning and follow the trail to the beach. Its a little rocky in places but not too bad. Turn right at the end of the trail and go down over the rocks to the pebble beach then look back to the left of the yellow house. You can also get a side view of the nest from about halfway along the trail down to the beach. Just look to the right over the yellow house.... though from this angle you are looking directly over the house so please be conscious of the occupants privacy :-)

  • 2015 - Nest collapsed near the end of the season but the lone eaglet was seen alive and well in the area after this so we hope that the eaglet survived
  • 2016 - 2 eaglets Big Browning and Little Browning. BB fledged on or before July 27, LB a week or so later

Thank you for opening our Browning Rd. thread Heather.
I was there yesterday looking for signs of eagles. No luck. However, the nest from the path looks like it took a beating by Big and Little Brownings. Ma and Pa have their work cut out for them! The tree has taken a beating as well! Enlarge pictures by clicking on them.

Thanks for the great pictures Sandra!

Sadly I have no pictures yet but I was down at Paul Beach this afternoon and saw an adult bald eagle fly in and land at the top of the nest tree! He/she seemed quite settled and stayed there for the whole time I was at the beach.
I definitely plan to get back there in the next couple of days to try to get the first pictures of the eagles for the season.

How nice to see you visit Pat! We have 10 nests here now, if my count is correct. It will be a lot to monitor but we have 5 of us checking on them and posting. WooHoo Not all have threads yet.

Welcome to the thread Pat!
I visited the nest this afternoon and it seemed that the nest has survived last weekends storm. WooHoo

I didn't see any eagles while I was there but here's a photo I took at the start of last week of one of the adults. Its a bit of a long distance shot as I was at the other end of the beach but these trees are really close to the nest tree so I'm pretty sure its one of the Browning adults.
