The Bald Eagles are Coming, the Bald Eagles are Coming Back to San Francisco! From Santa Clara, San Mateo, and Marin

Here’s the latest, from Santa Clara County:

What can I say but that it’s Bald Eagle Watch time, baby?

Dese boids are coming in from the north and from the south.

When will we have a nesting pair here in San Francisco?

    I actually found the location on google earth this morning

    you can see the nest from a normal shot from calaveras road along the lake

    this would be much closer to where people can get to than Crystal Springs. The Crystal Springs are at least 1/2 a mile away across the lake (can’t get closer), while the Calaveras ones are less than 1/4 mile off the road. And it’s also pretty unusual for bald eagles to nest in a power pole like that

    I’ll try to get down there some time…without a car it’s possible by bike with Fremont Bart and another bus that goes down to Milpitas

    Oh yes, and bit of uphill to get into that area.

    Go for it. Why not?

    Crystal Springs Bald Eagles…

    very likely the first ever video of San Mateo’s very first nesting pair of bald eagles in 100 years, taken earlier today. This is on San Francisco Water Department property and the closest these eagles have nested to San Francisco in our generation. A…

    well, it’s uphill to get to crystal springs too – even more so. You can bike up to the Sawyer Camp trail at crystal springs at Millbrae, Hillsborough or Crystal Springs Road in San mateo (you can take the bus to College of San Mateo too and it’s about 2 miles from there, very hilly tho)

    elevation at crystal springs is 400 feet and calaveras is 1000 feet..certainly doable. I’ve biked all the way up Mt Diablo before

    the main point about taking caltrain and bart and the bus with a bike is just to get there faster, so you have more hours of watching because it does take time and patience. from SF without a car you can get to Crystal Springs in a little over and hour (millbrae bart up trousdale)

    I figure with calaveras it’s probably 2 hours or a little more with Fremont bart and the bus to Milpitas
