Campbell River BC (Vancouver Is) Bald Eagle Festival: March 3/07

Festivals and Fun The Campbell River Bald EAgle Festival is about to hold its 2nd Annual Event.

If it turns out like last year it will be incredible -- again. Maj Birch, the organizer and energy behind the Mountainaire Avian Rescue Society, promises both great weather and record number of eagles. Actually I predict the record number of eagles.

Unlike the other west coast Festivals, the Campbell River one is set when all the local breeding eagles are on their territories. However, the area gets hundreds of additional northern birds still going north and hundreds of sub-adults that do not have to stay on a nest territory. These brids gather in this area -- right through to Doug Carrick and his Hornby Island area, to feed on the schooling balls of herring gathering to spawn.

I can't remember the name of the beautiful Museum but it is on the highway as you enter Campbell River. You can always tell it as a pair of nearby nesting birds perch beside the hghway above the Musuem doorway -- quite a greeting to most people.

Doug and I will be on hand with talks, hopefully answering questions etc. As will lots of other speakers and a whole building full of interesting exhbits.

I hope to see you in Campbell River. It opens at 10:00. March 3
