1 - eaglets are named by the homeowners, based on a phonetic alphabet; we've occasionally added nicknames 2 - we did not have a camera on this nest in 2010, but observers reported that two chicks fledged successfully 3 - as the eagles aren't banded, we don't know if the one seen October 8 and a few times afterwards was one of the resident pair 4 - we think the eagles that returned in October 2012 were the resident pair, and we believe at some point in the fall, a different pair took over the nest; they laid two eggs in March 2013, but left them untended for long periods of time in the cold, rain and wind so they were not viable, and they were eventually predated by two different young eagles (on April 28 and May 8); David Hancock shared his thoughts on all this here - A Different Year 5 - there were earlier visits to the nest by an adult (Sept 16 and Sept 30), but no proof it was one of the resident pair 6 - one egg broke April 2; the timing of the hatching suggests it was the third egg that broke; observers didn't notice any accidental damage, but it may have been bumped, or there may have been a problem with the egg On a private portion of the White Rock bluff overlooking Boundary Bay is a small grove of evergreens.One tree, only about 100 feet from the back porch of the home, has an eagle nest in it.

This pair have had to work hard to hold onto one of the world's best chunks of bald eagle habitat -- a good home site overlooking the most productive waterway on the continent does not come without effort -- or costs.
Obviously the competition for this space is great (a different pair occupies about every half mile of cliffs/shoreline overlooking Boundary Bay) and, in this case as we saw the last couple of years, this competition is not just between a lot of other eagles wanting to take over your territory.
It is also competition for the very space occupied by the tree so another million dollar house can be erected.If you are looking for some breath taking views of London, England, then look no further!Two chicks were successfully raised to fledging in summer of 2010, 20.We think a different pair tried to nest here in 2013, but they weren't as experienced and their eggs failed to hatch.As none of the eagles are banded, it's impossible to know if that pair was more mature in 2014 - or if the original pair returned - but either way, the nesting pair successfully fledged two chicks in 2014. It finally happened and what a great fortuitous way it did fail -- no bird was hurt or is in danger and nobody on the ground was hurt. Great to see the two step process of the downfall: PM and PM yesterday.Note that the infrared lights installed in the nest cannot be seen by the eagles, only by the cameras. I have been following this White Rock pair for about 19 years in several different nests -- all of which I believe relate to the same territory -- now called the White Rock pair.
