2012 Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival – Theme Photo Contest

Festivals and Fun

Do you have a favourite eagle picture taken of the eagles in the Harrison River Estuary? Why not send it in and share it with the world?

The FVBEF Society is once again looking for that special eagle shot to be used as the “2012 Featured Photo”.

The selected picture will be used throughout the festival’s marketing and promotional material and will receive full photographer’s credit. See the information below for details. Good luck!

Brackendale, BC and Concrete, WA Bald Eagle Festivals -- all of January

Festivals and Fun

BRACKENDALE:   If I forgot to have this posted earlier, I apologize.  All of January is the month of Brackendale's great weekends of eagles, tours by Tor and always an astonishing group and variety of conservation lectures. The Sunday is usually devoted to an incredible variety of music events.  Again this year the region is having low salmon returns.  Let's hope we get rid of the salmon farms and start to grow salmon again in the majority of our rivers.

CONCRETE, WA:   This is a revitalization of their earlier Bald Eagle Festival but now held earlier in the year.  I will be presenting at Concrete at 10 AM on Saturday, January 21.  This will be a new presentation "Salmon, Eagles and More".

With our Harrison -- Chehalis eagles now leaving due to having eaten out the available fish carcasses, it is likely some of the 6000 plus eagles of our area will have moved on to Brackendale and Concrete in search of dinner.

Fish Carcasses Still in Abundance -- and so are the Eagles

Festivals and Fun

Click on image to download

Last Saturday was again a wondrous day on the Harrison River with the Fraser River Safari Tours -- a boat load of people saw some 3500 eagles -- an incredible sight.

The spawning is over and only dead fish carcasses are still around though we did see a few "dying salmon" in a deeper pool near the Harrison River Bridge.  They were spawned out and waiting to die -- and being watched by many eagles.
