Campbell River Bald Eagle Festival -- Eagle Release Video
Each February not only do Bald Eagles gather in and around Campbell River on Vancouver Island BC to feast on the spawning herring but "Eaqle Watchers" descend to see them and enjoy the fine Festival to honor them. The Mountainaire Avian Rescue Society puts on the annual Fest and a highlight is the release of one of the eagles they have received 'hurt' but have spent countless hours mending, rehabilitating and again conditioning the bird so it can again live in the wild.
A Festival highlight, over and above the fine conservation -- educational displays and the list of fine lecturers, is the acutal release of an eagle back into the wild.
The following video, created by Laura Murphy of Angus Productions in cooperation with the Hancock Wildlife Foundation and BCIT, shows both the emotion-filled release and a glimpse at Festival activities.
