Nesting Bald Eagles in the City of Vancouver 2009

Urban Eagle Sightings



Bald eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) are an adaptable species that have become a common sight around the Lower Mainland in the last few decades. These eagles, which were once declining in population, have rebounded and learned to live in the urban environment. Commonly thought of as a primarily fish-eating species, our local eagles seem to have specialized in hunting birds. Gulls , crows, ducks and other species are all commonly eaten by Vancouver eagles, as well as fish and scavenged items usually found along the seashore. Vancouver eagles nest in large trees in parks, backyards, parking lots and even in one industrial site. These often public and noisy sites have been chosen by these large predators as a home base for most of the year, and as nurseries to raise their chicks through the spring and summer.

The Stanley Park Ecology Society (SPES) has been monitoring bald eagles nesting in Vancouver since 2004 in partnership with the Lower Mainland Wildlife Tree Stewardship program (WiTS). Standardized protocols and mapping techniques are used to track these birds throughout the breeding season with the help of our dedicated team of volunteers. The information we gather is shared with government wildlife staff, the public and the media through our website and regular printed updates. In 2009 there were 19 bald eagle nests monitored in Vancouver by SPES staff and volunteers.

The records for the nesting pairs of eagles in Vancouver are dependent on the information we obtain from members of the public and from the hard work of volunteers who check the nest sites regularly through the breeding season.
