Note* : The counts you will find here are taken during the two day festival by a group of volunteers with the exception of 2010
The eagle numbers historically have increased after the festival weekend as Northern BC and Alaska freeze up and drive the raptors south in search of easy meals and milder temperatures. In 2010 a count was done by David Hancock on board one Fraser River Safari tour , the number? 7,362 eagles.
