French Creek Estuary Nest Information

French Creek Estuary Land is an incredibly diverse and rich habitat supporting 180 species of birds, 6o species of waterfowl, salmon, river otters, beaver and much other wildlife – and it could become the first Eagle Preserve on Vancouver Island!  A pair of bald eagles had been nesting at the French Creek Marina, but that tree was found to be unsafe in a public place.  Happily, Hancock Wildlife Foundation was able to build a replacement nest (funded by property owners French Creek House Ltd.) – and the owners generously offered to fund the installation of a webcam, so we’ll be able to see the eagles explore their new home.


As of October 19, the nest is in place, and we’re hoping to have the cam streaming soon.

French Creek Estuary Eagle Cam

We are trying a different way of streaming the cam, so you may see two of the same cam here for a day or two; we’ll return David Hancock’s video about building the nest when we’re done.
