Hello! Welcome to our nest! 

Hornby Island eagles


The beautiful bald eagles you see on our web cam live on Hornby Island, British Columbia, Canada

Bald eagles are raptors, birds that have beaks, talons and abilities that allow them to find, catch and eat their foods. 

The Hornbys' favourite foods are fish, like herring, salmon and midshipmen. The eagles will soar over the water looking for fish to catch, but Dad Hornby is not above stealing a fish from a crow

Bald eagles prefer to live in habitat that has water for fishing, tall sturdy trees for nesting, and privacy. They are not comfortable with humans, especially when they are nesting.

The Hornbys are lucky birds because their habitat is very good. There are many tall trees for perching and for building nests near the shore; the ocean there still has enough food for them and the other eagles on Hornby Island. They have more privacy than do many other eagles because the island is not over-populated by humans. Habitat loss is a very serious problem for these birds. When people cut down the big strong trees to build roads or houses, some eagles lose their homes.

The people of Hornby Island are working hard to protect their habitat, and that of their wild neighbours.
