Important Notes

During Eagle Watch the eagles are fed between 8:00am and 10:00am in the morning at the corner of Middle Dyke and Bains roads. A large pile of chicken is laid for them, however, please be advised that there is no “garauntee” the eagles will choose to feed at that time.
Eagles are in the area from late November until early March.
January and early February are the best months for viewing.
Please drive safely avoiding sudden un-signalled stops.
Highway shoulders are not as wide as they may appear. When ditches are filled with snow, leave at least half the width of your vehicle on the pavement.
The Eagles are most plentiful during mid to late morning.
Pick up a map indicating viewing sites.
