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.
These are a few birds that we see often in the estuary and main river while we are looking for Grizzly Bears. The American Dipper, Cedar Waxwing and Belted Kingfisher. The Kingfisher is particularly common and can be heard and seen in many areas including right by the lodge.Visit our Blog
