Hi everyone,
These are great photos, not just of the gorgeous eagles but the excitement of the festival. We had family come up from California so we took them on Sunday. It was fabulous!
I posted the many photos my husband took on the HWF Facebook page for you to enjoy.

Please post a few of them here, Lydia. We need to have as many as possible in one place for yearly reference. Thanks so much.

No, that photo of the rainbow is not photo shopped! We saw that rainbow live and in person on Wednesday after the Release when Kit & I were sitting on that log we showed you down by the water in front of the Sandpiper Golf Course Restaurant!

It was icing on the cake!

Saturday tee time - I talked to this golfer who wondered what all the birds were. When he made his shot it sounded like a gun going off and a dozen or so eagles flew off from nearby trees, but most of the eagles didn't budge.

A message from Fraser River Safari:

December 10 - The final tour of 2017

2017 really was a year of extremes, from record low temperatures in the winter to a heat wave and low, low summer water levels. Despite the challenges we still enjoyed each and every tour and thank all of our customers for allowing us to do this for 11 years now.

The eagle numbers are still very good in the Harrison and with water levels dropping we could have another large influx of birds coming to feast on the freshly exposed salmon carcasses.

This weekend we are running the last scheduled tour of 2017 at 11 am and the weather looks like it may even hold until then. ADDED BONUS: David Hancock will be joining the tour to lend his 60+ years of raptor knowledge to the mix.

If you were thinking of joining an eagle tour this season, this may be the perfect weekend to do so. You can BOOK DIRECTLY HERE under the "Eagle Tour with David Hancock".

AND if we don't see you this season. Merry Christmas and the Happiest of New Year's from our house to yours!

A lot of people have heard about the bald eagle, but you don't really appreciate the majestic nature of a bald eagle until you actually get to view one. - Scott Root
