Boundary Bay Central Nest Information
This nest on a pole was installed in Delta, British Columbia, near the central part of the shore of Boundary Bay in September 2022 by the Hancock Wildlife Foundation. When the eagles returned from migration in October, they immediately occupied the site and fledged one eaglet in July 2023. The two cams were installed in late summer 2023 while the eagles were away on vacation. HWF’s official designation for the nest is De-570, and we also sometimes refer to it as the Boundary Bay Middle nest – though it is on the shore, not in the middle of Boundary Bay!
September 8, 2023 – this is very much a work in progress at the moment and may contain residual information about Harrison Mills since I’m starting with a copy of that page to simplify formatting – and that also lets me announce that we installed new cams at Harrison Mills and they are now live! ~JudyB

The nest was installed in September 2022 by the Hancock Wildlife Foundation. When the eagles returned in October, they immediately occupied the nest, and successfully raised one chick in 2023. The cameras were installed in late summer 2023, so 2024 will be our first year to watch these eagles.

Boundary Bay Central Bald Eagle Nest DE-570
and surrounding nests with cams
The City of Surrey (46 Active Nests) is along the east side of Boundary Bay with the City of Delta (83 Active Bald Eagle Nests) bordering the north and west sides of the Bay. Point Roberts, with its 11 bald eagle nests, is part of the United States. The City of Blaine, Washington, is just south of the east side of Boundary Bay. Over a hundred nesting pairs of bald eagles forage Boundary Bay. Many of the additional 35,000 wintering eagles who nest in the northern boreal forest lakes also forage the Bay and the Vancouver Landfill.
The Boundary Bay Central nest (De-570) is in the upper middle of the map; the Delta 2 (De-2) territory is a bit inland on the left/west side, our White Rock (WR) nest is on the right, and Surrey Reserve (SR) nest is on the far right/east side of the map, inland a bit from Semiahmoo Bay, which is the southeastern section of Boundary Bay.
Note, the map is for reference only; the exact location is not public to avoid any potential disruptions in the lives of the eagles and those living near them. Thanks!
