Bald Eagles in Vancouver & Streaming B.C. Eagle Cams

B.C.’s bald eagles have been getting a lot of press lately, given that late-March – mid-April is prime hatching season for their precious eggs. Right now, there are several bald eagle nests—with eggs getting ready to hatch in the next few weeks—scattered throughout the Lower Mainland, including nests in White Rock, Delta, Victoria, Port Moody, and even right here in Vancouver itself.

Thanks to the efforts of the Hancock Wildlife Foundation, bald eagle fans can watch nests–and the eagles and hatchlings–via streaming video.

The nest here in Vancouver is at the Lafarge concrete plant, located in on the waterfront in downtown Vancouver, beside the main CP rail tracks in the heart of Vancouver’s container and grain port facilities.

The Lafarge Vancouver nest has three eggs expected to hatch around April 20, 2011.

The Hancock Wildlife Foundation is also streaming live feed from Victoria’s Sydney Eagle Nest, where three eggs are expected to begin hatching around April 11, 2011.

Watch the nests and follow the bald eagle action at the Hancock Wildlife Foundation’s site here, or via CBC here. You can also see time-lapse video at the Hancock Wildlife Foundation’s YouTube channel.

Have tips for spotting bald eagles in Vancouver? We’d love to hear from you!

    I just wanted to express concerns for an Eagle’s nest at the end of the street where construction is happening for more housing. These Eagles lost the limb on the other tree they were in, when it gave out, and now there’s all this construction that I fear will disturb their existing nest. Could someone please check on this? At the end of Dominion st. In Burnaby. West of Gilmore. Tree is between Dominion and the freeway. Thank you.

    I enjoy watching nature and this is as real as it gets. Thank you for doing this. They are gorgeous birds and I hope that people appreciate how lucky we are to witness this couple and their young. I hope Mom is feeding equally the same and that none get pushed out of the nest so that other ones can thrive. Nature can be beautiful but cruel.

    Thanks, G H
