Welcome to the Ardmore Bald Eagle Nest

This thread is dedicated to observations, photos and videos of the eagles who inhabit a nest located in the Ardmore area of North Saanich on Vancouver Island BC.
It is on private property so the exact location will not be made public.
Last year this pair had at least one eaglet successfully fledge.
We look forward to observing and documenting them for the entire coming year and wish them every success.
Here is the link to the 2012-2013 thread.

Visited today and saw one eagle from this territory. I think it was moving food down from its crop.

What a lovely new nest area this is.

Lynda is beckoning me to come on down to the shoreline to see more of the area. I was lagging behind taking pictures.

This scene reminds me so much of Pat Bay Beach.

However looking in the other direction I see that the view is different.

Here's some Garry Oak trees which I just love.

Out on the rocks we could see seals.

I didn't take a picture of the Ardmore eagle as it was too far away for my little camera that I took on this trip.

Saw both Ardmores for the very first time together on a rock in the bay. Very sweet. Back with pix.

It was cold but beautiful out there today. However seeing the Ardmore pair sitting so sweetly together made it all worth it. The seals that had been on the rock fled into the water and their heads were bopping up and down waiting for the eagles to leave and give them their rock back.

I visited the Ardmore nest this morning with a friend and both eagles were perched in separate trees near their nest.

The nest.

We thought this one was Mom as she was bigger than
the other one. She was looking out over the bay.

This one looked at us once then just ignored us.

Nobody home at the nest or surrounding area that I could see yesterday. There was a lovely Pileated Woodpecker having a great go at a tree nearby the nest . Got a vid. Will post later.

I visited the Ardmore nest yesterday but the eagles weren't home. The nest is looking very ready for eggs fingers crossed

White head just barely visible in the nest today with binoculars. Not picture worthy Sad but certainly promising.

I went to the Ardmore nest yesterday afternoon. I didn't see any eagles in the trees or in the nest but when I was down on the beach I heard them squawking back and forth but I couldn't see them Sad It was the familiar mating sound Left thumb up I took a few pics of the nest from different vantage points and zoomed in on them but can't see anything that looks like eagle feathers or a beak. Most eagles I watch are smart about how they build their nest; they usually build up the sides that face the road Wink

Beautiful pictures, Lynda. I love that spot where you took me. Both Ma and Pa were on the rock that day.
