I've often wondered where this couple goes for prey. Thank you for that information Annemie. Great coverage of this nest is happening. Wonderful! Clapping

Thank you so much Stim,
Yes I have seen the eagles at the lake a few times last year as well, but I did not have a Camera with me at that time.
I have the feeling that our Hastings couple visits the lake early in the morning or in the late evening.
The other times I see them fly towards the Inlet that passes under the 2nd Narrows Bridge.
There is a nice big Sanctuary right off Dollarton Hyw. going toward Deep Cove, but not to far from the bridge.
It runs right along the shore line.
I have a feeling that they might like to hang out there as well.
Big hugs

Thanks for the pics Urban Eagle Left thumb up

Took a walk over last night around 8 PM with Annemie and the Sanctuary pond on the PNE grounds was a hub of eagle activity. Ma was up on the nest with the kids but Pa was swooping around the north end of the Sanctuary raiding the nest of the crows for their babies. Quite the sight with the low dives and passes through the trees over the water with loud crows in close pursuit.

All the activity died down and we went back to spending some quality time with the 2 batches of Canada geese and their little ones. The family of 2 parents is still at number 9 and have really grown in size. They started at 12 between the 2 sets of adults {9+3} and now have stayed steady at 9 for some time now with the 2 pairs sharing them and keeping a close watch. Can't say the other single family of parents of 10 that travels a short distance away at all times with the others has faired as well. Down to 4 little ones now....I guess the folks up in the nest know something about this Chin Grin

You got to visit with most of the family Larry. Nice. Thanks for the pics.
And Stan what an interesting and timely visit you had with Pa at the pond! I would have watched his activity with very mixed feelings. The positive is seeing 9 of your goslings still there. With that we know they continue to grow and become less attractive as eagle prey.

Hi Stim wave

Yes the eagles have appeared to focus their attention on the other new family of much smaller goose babies that recently joined in the mix and left the older {and much larger} ones sitting at 9 for quite some time now. Protection in numbers is the key to success in their case in my view with 2 sets of ever alert parents watching 9, always very close by, for several weeks at this location.

I know how you feel on how nature works either with the baby crows or the ever dropping number count on the 2nd to arrive on the scene Canada Geese...it is the way it works in nature as hard as it is to witness for the human observers.
