Victoria/Sidney Nest - Chicks Getting Bigger Daily

Victoria/Sidney NestThe new nest site on Vancouver Island, at Victoria/Sidney, has produced a couple of fat and sassy eaglets.

The new camera was installed the first week of May, and shows the two eaglets in the nest in a Gary Oak tree on the Saanich Penninsula near Victoria International Airport. We'll bring you updates and more background information as they grow and mature. In the mean time you can watch them yourself at the Hancock Wildlife Video site.

For more information and background, visit the Vancouver/Sidney Eagle Nest forum topic

Update - May 31 - about 2PM PDT: The camera angle has been changed (crane boom moved right and camera panned back to show more of the area behind the main trunk) and been zoomed out to allow us to see more of the nest now that the chicks are bigger and roaming around the nest more.

Over the past years I've kept my eyes open for nests in and around the Vancouver area as I visit customers and ride my Honda Goldwing for pleasure.

Here are a couple of pictures I recently took of nests.
