Wintering Bald Eagle in Squamish

The Eagles Have Landed In Squamish

Squamish is a bird watcher’s paradise, but in the winter months, it stands apart. Every fall, just when the salmon runs begin, Bald Eagles from around North America come to Squamish to take shelter for the cold winter months and hunt for their favourite dish. Thousands of salmon in the creeks and rivers around Squamish play host to these great sentinels of the coastal forest and it is truly a sight to behold.
