It was a wet and snowy day yesterday as we counted eagles, but they are still here! Identifying eagles in snow covered trees is definitely a challenging task. Check out the numbers below:
Newhalem to Marblemount: 32
Marblemount to Rockport: 48
Rockport to Sedro Woolley: 81
Be sure to come visit us at one of our three designated eagle viewing stations this weekend to see what’s happening on the Skagit in eagle world. We will have staffed stations on Saturday and Sunday from 10:00-3:00 at Howard Miller Steelhead Park in Rockport, Milepost 1oo (Sutter Creek Rest Area) and Marblemount Fish Hatchery. See you out there!
