Bird of the Month: Bald eagle


Our national bird, the bald eagle, is often seen in Birch Bay and around the Semiahmoo Spit, Blaine and Drayton Harbor. Juveniles, l., take up to five years to acquire their yellow beak and white head and tail.

The Nooksack River Welcome Bridge (Mosquito Lake Road, North Fork, Deming) is a very popular eagle-viewing spot in late December and early January, as large numbers congregate there to feed on salmon.

Live eagle and other raptor shows are presented by the Sardis Raptor Center at the Wings Over Water Birding Festival (March 15-17, 2024).

Both photos were taken from Birch Bay Drive.
