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!
This is a picture of the nest that I took in 2010.

Thanks for opening the thread for the new season for this nest Marg. I'm looking forward to following the nest this year

I did notice an adult eagle circling around the north end of Davis Bay about a week ago but couldn't hang around to see if it was one of the Chapmans or another eagle just passing through . Fingers crossed for a confirmed sighting soon!

Heatherj, we did see Sitting eagle 's fly over our house heading to the Chapman nest area but no pictures this was a couple of weeks ago. A week ago (early in the morning) I saw one fly down followed by the other one a few seconds later.

Driving into Sechelt around 2:30 today we spied 2 eagles sitting close together in one of the perch trees they've used for years on the highway. The 2 evergreens together with bare tops, branches gone approaching Selma Park area. Marg you've thought through the years that these would be our Chapman couple perched there. What a lovely sight they made. Sitting eagleSitting eagle

No, Sandra you are mistaken we believe that is too far from the Chapman nest, the Chapman eagles fly up our way and perch. We have wondered if the eagles we see perched there (where you saw them today) perhaps have a nest in the area around the church on the Sechelt Indian Band Lands. Dunno

I'm glad you saw the Sitting eagleSitting eagle though because I haven't seen them perched there for quite a while. Grin wave

I have wondered through the years if these could be Bandland eagles and now, even our Selma Reservoir Rd nest couple. Dunno
I don't think I saw perching there last nesting season, was very surprised to see 2 of them side by side.
