The Bald Eagle is a very prominent bird in our area. It takes them approximately 5 years to get their white head and white tail feathers. Before that they are a drab brown colour and often look larger then their adult counterparts because of their “poofy plumage.” The eagles mate for life and it is very hard to tell male from female, although the female is usually larger. We see them on all our tours both in Johnstone Strait and Knight Inlet.
The problem the grizzly is yesterday’s post has is the four bears in today’s. No bear except a large male wants to confront a mother grizzly bear with two cubs. And this was a five-year-old male who wanted time to think about its decision. Also in the photo is another large female but without cubs (head lower right corner). After about five minutes of pondering he entered the river and did some fishing but kept his distance from the other bears.Visit our Blog
