Sidney, BC

Most pictures and info are from the Hancock Wildlife Channel's
threads on the Sidney BC Bald Eagle Nest

This pair fledged 2 eaglets, named Victoria and Sidney, in 2006. They laid two eggs in 2007, one of which hatched and successfully fledged; that eaglet was named Skye. This pair was observed building a feeding platform in 2007, which they made into a second nest that they used for 2008; attempts to place cameras in the alternative nest were unsuccessful - the tree was too high for the crane - so information for 2008 was provided by observers on the ground - who reported the successful fledging of three eaglets, named Sunny, Angel and Freddy. For 2009, there will be a wide-angle cam in each nest, providing streaming video with sound.

Based on past experience, look for eggs in early to mid March, chicks in mid April, and fledging in mid to late July.
