Upper Skagit Bald Eagle Festival

Starting January 3, 2015 - 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.
