Best way to see Bald Eagles can be as simple as coming to BC, bring binoculars and watch….cheap…this is a video some local cable company made of our trip to see the bald eagle phenomenon that happens every fall/early winter here near our house. Have a look…I made the cut. I am the one in the video who says I am from NY. ;-)
The weekend of November 23-24, 2013, Cheryl and I headed out about an hour east of where we live to get away for the weekend and enjoy the Bald Eagle frenzy that happens every year around here. Thousands of salmon come to the Chehalis Flats where the Fraser and Harrison Rivers meet to spawn. It’s also this time of year when the annual Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival goes on as well.
Around this time of year into January resident and transient eagles come by for their free buffet of food before their nesting season starts around March. Most are coming from Alaska after the salmon spawned up there and leave after the big freeze. Tons of food for all species so it is also a special time to see normally non-social raptors gets along with so many young and old. Continue reading

Big Post coming up but here is some picture from our day today in our beautiful Province of BC…all pics can be enlarged
You need to watch this if you love Bald Eagles like I do. The weekend of November 23rd, Cheryl and I will be heading out only about an hour east of where we live to check out the annual eagles feast. Thousands of eagles all ages arrive to feed on the spawning salmon around Harrison Mills, BC. I go every year but this year Cheryl is coming with her high-powered new work camera. We don’t have a lens like Christian used in this video, a local photographer but I am certain we will get some great shots.
Enjoy! We are truly lucky to live so close to this annual phenomenon.
October 26th 2013-pics all clickable
We were not able to ski today but wanted too….being on call for work got in the way but we did manage to get out for a drive. How many places do you know where you can ski, play golf and eagle watch all in one if you wanted too? Dec. 30th 2012 we watched skiers, people playing golf and taking pictures of the eagles that are still around the Fraser River eating dead salmon.
Here is a few pics from a great day out! Again, we do believe we live in such a beautiful place here in BC. There are 4 ski mountains within an hour or so drive from our house and MANY golf courses. Weather was bright and sunny, around 3 C or 34-36 F.
This is what I saw and heard on Nov. 26th 2012. I was in the background of this great photographer Sasse (Make Sure you watch in HD)

At around 8am at a distance of about 500 yards these eagles could be seen from Kilby bridge across the Harrison River. Some interested people stopped and had a look as I was filming. ( I was one of the interested people ;-) )
