How many eagles can you find? The Chehalis/Harrison River Estuary attracts large numbers of Bald and Golden Eagles from December to February, which feed on spawning Coho and Chum Salmon. On December 18, 2010, a total count of 7,362 eagles in a 2 sq km section of the flats set a world record high! Some 3,500 eagles were in the area when this image was taken on December 17, 2011. This eagle concentration is perhaps the 3rd largest in the world after the Chilkat River, Alaska, and Squamish River, BC. Vancouver is the urban bald eagle capital of the world with 380 documented eagle nests. In the winter, the Fraser Valley has the world's highest concentration of feeding eagles. Note: lack of sharpness is due to the rain, fog and mist.
