One of the things that attracted us to this property was that there was a nesting pair of eagles that lived in a tall Fir Tree in the centre of the acreage. This tree is about 50 feet behind the Love Shack and we get to see a lot of coming and going. This must be a good area for eagles because they are abundant here on the upper Sunshine Coast. This pair is particularly vocal and spends a lot of time calling back and forth to each other. I suppose there will come a time that I tire of all the screeching, whistles and clicks, but for the moment, I find it endlessly fascinating. I also love watching them wheel around the meadow. When you are standing at the edge of the bluff, they are often flying by at your elevation or even slightly below. The size and power of these birds is amazing. They take regular trips out to the Salish Sea to hunt for fish. I’ve even watched them hunting water fowl that live out on the Salish Sea. The ducks are generally too fast for them and can swim under water to evade the eagles, but occasionally, they are successful. When I have a little more time, I intend to get some better pictures of these birds.
