A new Hancock Wildlife eagle nest

The nest is in an old Garry oak tree in Sidney, British Columbia - 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.
This pair has successfully raised young in front of the Hancock Wildlife cameras in 2006 and 2007.  In 2008 they produced THREE eaglets in a new nest about 500 ft. from the original nest. 
There are currently two cameras in the nest tree (only one LIVE so far), the wide angle camera and one much closer to the nest (the closeup camera) and two microphones, one near each camera - with both sent to both views of the streams as a stereo pair.

Someone should contact HWF... this information is unfortunately, not current. The sidneys are in a new nest this year, about 100 yards from the one in the gary oak, but still on the same property. The new tree is a dead pine tree and it has only one camera. In part because there were so few limbs suitable for mounting a camera onto.
The second camera is still in the original Gary Oak but not yet online.
