A rare opportunity to see bald eagle expert and wildlife biologist David Hancock speak amid the eagles he loves. David's 50 years as a wildlife biologist and eagle expert offer a unique perspective on these beautiful raptors and the eco-system that sustains them. From the first attempts to conduct egg counts by plane, to the successful installation of web cameras to broadcast the daily lives of bald eagles to the world live on the internet, David has been there. He shares his depth of insight and experience in a lively, educational presentation the whole family will enjoy.
A not to be missed presentation!
The Tepadera Estates is one of the best locations for eagle viewing, not only because of its wide open spectacular view of the flats but because it has washrooms and, thanks to the Tapadera Social Club, refreshments by a roaring fire to fend off the cool November air!
The link below is to a wonderful Photo taken by Pam at last year's festival. Double Click to enlarge; there are eagles everywhere!
