Doug Carrick and his Hornby Island Bald Eagles -- An Interview

 

At last year's Campbell River Bald Eagle Festival I had the opportunity to sit down with Doug and talk about his early beginnings with eagles.  I had the good luck to have Laura Murphy, a BCIT student in their Video Department, on hand to tape our conversation.

The plan is to have this combined with the videos he has made from the various years working with his eagles to produce a 2 hour presentation  -- a tribute to Doug and his birds.

In the meantime, and as of today when Ken Cillis was at Dougs to connect up these eagles to the WEB (Feb 3.09),  perhaps you will be able to directly follow the life of eagles on our CAMS.

Doug's interview is at:   Doug Carrick's Video Talk with David Hancock

If you are not already doing so please check the Live Video CAMS of the Hornby Island Eagles

Also check out the book Doug just wrote on these eagles and his life following them:

Good eagling.

Chehalis Fish Hatchery  Underwater CAM  Installation

 

The Chehalis Fish Hatchery  is an incredible place to watch salmon -- all five species AND Steelhead & Cutthroat Trout.

The Hancock Wildlife Foundation, during the peak of the salmon runs from September through December, tries to keep a Live CAM focused on the passing and spawning salmon.  The following brief video was made by a BCIT student, Laura Murphy, showing a bit about the installation of the CAM and the area.

Have a pleasant view or visit to the area.  The Chehalis -- Harrison Flats,  just north of the Harrison River Bridge on Highway 7 is also the home of our Fraser River Bald Eagle Festival -- the third weekend of November.

CAmpbell River Eagle Festival - Release

Teachers Background Data

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.

Sharp-eyed rescuers revive eagle found clinging to life

Sharp-eyed rescuers revive eagle found clinging to life

Yakima Herald-Republic

YAKIMA The caller had reported seeing a dead eagle in his pasture, so when John McGowan approached it, he certainly didn't think he was looking at Sleeping Beauty.

Yep, he thought. Dead bald eagle.
