Pics of the week: Eagle watching along Skagit River

I spent Friday and Saturday eagle watching on and along the Skagit River. I was in the Concrete-Rockport-Marblemount stretch and was able to catch the first day of the Upper Skagit Bald Eagle Festival.


If you want to check out the eagles, you better hurry as the number of birds in the area are starting to decline.


If you can’t make it up there this year, I thought I would post these photos.


If you want to plan for next season, the majority of the eagles are in the area in December.


A seemingly shy bald eagle takes off from the rocky bank of the Skagit River just upstream from Rockport.


An immature bald eagle, left, and mature eagle take off from a riverside tree downstream from Rockport on the Skagit River.
