Note* : The first counts listed are taken during the two day festival by a group of volunteers. The following counts are taken during the peak of the “Season of the Eagles” along the Harrison River. They show that this incredibly productive river systems hosts the largest gathering of eagles in North America. The count is over an area that consists of a mere 3 km stretch of river.

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 biologist David Hancock on board one Fraser River Safari tour , the number?  7,362 eagles.
