British Columbia, Canada, has long been in the forefront of preservation of bald eagles. Right now (April/May/June 2009) an amazing webcam is capturing the unfolding progress of baby eaglets as they grow are nurtured and raised.
Enjoy the exceptional show. Remember the nest is in the Pacific time zone.
The nest is in an old Garry oak tree in Sidney, BC – a suburb of Victoria, the capital of British Columbia, situated on the South end of Vancouver Island. The area is near the Swartz Bay ferry terminal on the Saanich Peninsula. In nest season 2006, the eagles raised 2 eaglets. In season 2007 they successfully raised one. Here we are in 2009!
