A spectacular view of an eagle's nest in Cuckold's Cove on Signal Hill has been attracting crowds to the site for a number of weeks.

If you get your timing right, you can spot one — or both — parent birds, along with the three baby birds, taking refuge in their tree-top nest.

Birder Jared Clarke said the eagles spotted at this nest are likely the same seen by locals last year.

"Bald eagles normally build a nest in one location and will continue to use that nest for a number of years on end, and last year was the first time that we know that this nest was here, so I would assume it was the same pair back nesting," said Clarke.

He said the chicks will likely take flight 8-12 weeks after they hatch, but will continue to be reliant on their parents for another couple of months.
