This is the number one question post festival and I apologize for not getting this up sooner. The eagle numbers in the area actually increase after the festival weekend, this can happen up until even January if the conditions are right.
All the right stuff in 2010-On December 18 David Hancock counted 7362 eagles from on board a jet boat tour, the eagles had descended on the Harrison due to the lack of spawning salmon in the rest of the Province. Lack of food in other areas and a northern freeze caused the eagles all to arrive at one time which created a wonderous event. By December 31 they were mostly gone, the raptors had eaten all the carcasses and abandoned the area in search of their next meal.
So…Can you still see eagles. Absolutely!- From the land you can head up Morris Valley Rd and stop in at Sandpiper or Eagle Point. On the other side of the bridge you can travel down to Kilby Provincial Park and take a walk along the dike. But if all else fails, Fraser River Safari and David Hancock of Hancock Wildlife are out running boat tours until the eagles are gone.
