This thread is for pictures from the annual Fingerling Festival held in Pt. Moody, BC. It is usually the first Saturday in May. What is a fingerling? It's a young salmon. On this day children go to the hatchery and are allowed to release the fingerlings into the stream. This event is always very well attended and the weather was perfect this year.

OWL (Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Soc.) had an outside display with live raptors.

Most of the rest of the exhibitors were inside the recreation complex.

There was also a special appearance by 'Harrison' the eagle mascot of the Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival. I'll let Darlene and Heather post the pictures of him.

Thank you for opening this thread and posting the pictures here Karen. It's good to see Heather and Darlene manning the table with David and what looks like a potentially good turnout of people to inform of HWF, to show the nests on the internet and get to meet David. An egg pipping just then could well send some home to tune in and become addicted as are we. Grin

Hello Everyone,

I had a great time at the Fingerling Festival. I'm super bummed because I forgot my camera at home. sigh sign I'm even more bummed because I didn't think to ask my husband to grab it when he ran home to get an extension cord for the computer and TV so that we could have a live stream of one of our nests. Faint

When I was escorting Harrison around to meet the many children and adults, I had a lady ask me if she could take a picture of him with the Crocodile.

This Crocodile was pretty talented. He could ride that scooter almost as good as most kids! Nodding yes
Picture is sideways, and I can't seem to upright it. Sorry guys.

The next 2 photos were posted on the Noons Creek Facebook page. The lady that took the picture of Harrison, asked if it were a problem to get one of him with David.
Of course not! And what a better way to get a small shout out for the up and coming Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival in November!

Despite the 30+ temperature outside Sunny, we were inside so it wasn't any where near as hot. I felt sorry for the teaching birds that accompanied OWL, and the Spotted Owl that accompanied the Northern Spotted Owl Captive Breeding Program. It turned out to be a good day, and a pretty good turn out.
Cheers
Heather
