Hello, eaglewatchers and visitors to the Upper Skagit! The Skagit Eagle Festival 2014 is on each weekend this month.
Marblemount is hosting these special activities January 11-12 as a winter storm bears down on our area. It might be a good day to stay inside and stay dry! Pat Buller is giving a program at noon at the visitor center at Howard Miller County Park, as well as organizing the following:
NATIVE AMERICAN HISTORY, STORYTELLING, MUSIC & MORE

For the latest weather forecast for Rockport Washington, click here. Eagle watcher volunteers and I will be meeting in the morning and setting up our stations and will be out looking for eagles unless we are forced inside due to extreme weather/Seahawks game/lack of interest.
During Wednesday’s eagle survey I observed several eagles at Milepost 100 and a few at Howard Miller. Will they be out and about this weekend? I’ll let you know.
See you on the river!
