Starving bald eagles so weak they fall from sky

Poor chum salmon runs leave birds without any food

 
 
Starving bald eagles are falling out of the sky in the Comox Valley, a wildlife expert says.

Maj Birch, manager of the Mountainaire Avian Rescue Society, is caring for seven eagles.

Several others had died before they could be helped, she said.

"This is the most we have ever had," Birch said. "Many of them are downed before they are brought in. They are on the ground and they're too weak to fly away.

"Some of them are actually falling out of the sky.

One of them slid off a roof yesterday."

How will this affect the eagle population? Is there any human interaction that can help? This makes me very sad. Why can't they find other food? Where is this happening.
