Welcome to the Sargeant Bay nest thread. The nest is in the community of Halfmoon Bay on the Sunshine Coast of BC west of Sechelt

If you visit the Sargeant Bay nest you are welcome to post comments and pictures here.

The nest is located behind the Pointhouse Suites on Sargeant Bay and appears to be on private property. The nest is visible from the public trail along the beach in the Provincial Park.

This nest is new to the forum in 2017 and I know very little about the history of the nest or this pair of eagles. I have visited Sargeant Bay many times since 2011 and have often seen eagles soaring above the ridge behind the bay. I have also occasionally seen eagles perched on various trees around the bay so I have suspected there has been a nest somewhere on or near the bay but this is the first time I have spotted the nest. If anyone has any more details it would be great to find out a bit of the history of this pair and nest.

I'm intrigued by the location here Heather. Hopefully a visit one day will be as fulfilling as it all looks to be.

We got up to Sargeant Bay yesterday and saw Ma and Pa sitting together near the nest tree. Here are the first few long distance shots showing Ma and Pa, the nest tree and the B&B

And a couple more from the other end of the beach walk. Standing behind the big rock there was a peek a boo view through to the perch tree

And there were a few flybys while we were there. One juvenile eagle, one sub-adult and one hawk - either a Coopers or Sharp-shinned I think.

UPDATE Red tailed Hawk - thanks Sandra!

Eagles and hawk rewarded your travels on Saturday! That looks like a Red-Tailed Hawk to me though. Grin
Such a beautiful spot to visit, eagles the bonus.
