Canadian Goose chasing a young bald eagle - Vanier Park

















For those living in Kitsilano is a great pleasure to have this year not one but two 2 young bald eagles living in Vanier Park, these are children of the a couple that nest every year in one of the big trees in this park.

We went for a walk today and saw that they are already flying around and are being chased by crows and also by geese if they get too close to them as we saw in one of the the little lagoons.

The young eagles look great and healthy, although we could not find the little ducklings that we saw 2 weeks ago, hopefully they were not part of their diet.

Even if the pictures that I am showing here look like one of the young eagles is attacking the goose is was actually the opposite.
