Port Susan Snow Goose & Birding Festival
> Birding Festivals


During the peak of bird migration, there's nothing more exciting than attending a birding
festival. The birds are spectacular and the people are great. If you haven't tried a festival
yet, this is a must-do for next season!

Upper Skagit Bald Eagle Festival
Starting January 4, 2014 - Each Saturday and Sunday in January

Each winter, hundreds of bald eagles converge in the Upper Skagit River Watershed in Northwestern
Washington. They are drawn by the thousands of spawned out salmon along the rivers. The eagles
come from as far north as the Yukon and Alaska to enjoy this easy food source. They make up
one of the two largest seasonal concentrations of bald eagles in the lower 48 states. The eagle
migration peaks mid December to late January. On one overcast day, January 19, 2005, 451 eagles
were counted between the towns of Newhalem and Sedro-Woolley.

May 15-18, 2014
