I always try to find an interesting location to eat our picnic lunch on a whale watching tour. This day it was with a mother bald eagle that had just caught a small salmon and was sharing her catch with this years offspring. When any animal / bird has food and you are not intrusive they tend to ignore your presence so we enjoyed watching this exchange of food for about thirty minutes.
Spring grizzly bear tours from the Lodge are looking for bears along the shore of Knight Inlet but mostly in bay and estuary of the Glendale River. The grizzlies come to the shore for the protein rich sedge grass and to turn over rocks for the crabs, clams, barnacles, amphipods and other tiny invertebrates. The male grizzlies come in late May and June, as this is the mating season and also the reason that this female is in the water. A male grizzly kept moving along the shore as this female stayed in the water for close to an hour until he moved back up the beach. The August 1st posting shows this determined male.
