David Hancock Report on 2014 Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival

Festivals and Fun

Nov.  15 -16,  2014  Harrison Mills, British Columbia

First, last weekend's weather was superb -- bright, sunny and cool.  However this was, unfortunately, our first cold spell of the fall or winter.  Juneau, Alaska had had only a couple of days with night frost.  Our HWF member, Christian Sasse, had returned this week from the Chilkat River in Alaska and he reported that only 52 eagles was his biggest count of eagles -- down a few from the 1200 to 2600 eagles I usually recorded at there this time.  The northern rivers of Alaska, Yukon and BC were all still unfrozen and each was continuing to yield spawned out salmon.  Until freezing weather locks all these northern salmon carcasses under the ice the eagles will stay spread across the northern region - not being driven south or westward to the "warm waters" of the Chilkat River.

The season of the eagles and salmon has arrived and we are ready to roll. 

2014 has been a fantastic year, with what felt like an endless summer that was followed by a mild fall.  However, in our humble opinion, the best is yet to come. There is something very special about November in Super Natural B.C. The river is never more impressive, especially if you enjoy wildlife, clean air and spectacular scenery.
