Baby Eaglets in the Nest!

Quite Exciting News! We were happy to see baby eaglets in one of the nests......

when we visited all the nests in the local area. At first all I saw was the dad sitting on his perch tree.

Then I realised if I stood back I could see mom in the nest.

She has one bobblehead eaglet with her that I could see at first.

The later I could see two bobblehead eaglets in the nest with her.

She was hiding the babies under her as much as she could as it was a hot day.

I never could get a photo of the two babies as they are so small still.

This nest is in Oak Bay.

All the other eagles are sitting on the nests but I can't see their babies yet.

Dad looking proud on his perch tree above and mom and her babies below. I hope everyone has a wonderful week! Thanks so much for coming to read my blog today.

  1. You seems like a proud parent, Nora!

    1. Gosh I need to get that Google+ thing as I cannot comment on many of the blogs now.

  2. Lets hope for continuing success!

    Kookaburras are not really that hard to see here - they often hang around in parks looking for scraps. I was making a cheese sandwich once when camping and had the cheese stolen almost out of my hand by one! I'm pretty sure that the birds in my post were used to getting a little more than scraps!

  3. Hi Nora!Your pictures are beautiful as ever!It is always a pleasure visiting your blog...Hugs!

  4. Hard to imagine that those little fuzz balls will grow up to be regal eagles! It's always exciting to see birds growing up. Our local robins are busy gathering nesting material. I hope we get a nest near the house that we can watch.

  5. I can feel your excitement through your words and photos. I am envious that you are able to just watch these magnificent birds rear their young.

  6. Nora...these are incredible!!

    Thanks so much for sharing & linking up at I'd Rather B Birdin!

  7. How exciting. What a majestic bird!

    1. Thanks so much Lydia but Oh another Google+ where I can't leave a comment. There is a setting they can use where we all can comment without the Google+ profile.

  8. So good to find the nests doing well! "Ours" are just about ready to fly away for good. (They hatched in December ... things are different down here in the Sunshine State). We had two as well.

  9. Lovely pics.
    Best wishes to the eaglets :)

  10. Its the time of the year in which we are blessed with new lie everywhere... how wonderful is that?

  11. Incredible shots! Would love to see an eagle in front of my camera, let alone an eaglet.

  12. it is quite exciting, indeed!

  13. Isn't it wonderful? I get all excited about eaglet announcements. There have been a couple from David Hancock. One was the Delta nest, but I don't remember if the White Rock nest was mentioned or not. Must check.

  14. Nice to see a nest doing well. I find watching them so stressful for me...I can hear your excitement dear Nora...Michelle

  15. It'.s amazing and wonderful that something as amazing as an eagle, starts out as a little fuzzball.
    Great photos Nora.

  16. What a great opportunity! Such a cute little face :)

  17. Awww - how fabulous!
