Eagle ViewingSRBEAT

  • To see eagles up close, use a telescope, binoculars or a telephoto lens. Keep noise low and your movements slow.
  • Whenever possible, stay in your car and use it as a blind from which to photograph the eagles.
  • Stay away from the river’s edge and gravel bars where eagles are feeding, especially between 5 and 11 a.m.
  • Most of the river frontage is privately owned. Use public ares along the river and be courteous to local land owners. Do not walk across private property.

  • Carry winter emergency equipment: blanke, flashlight, jumper cables, snow shovel, additional winter clothing, and abrasive material (e.g. cat litter, sand).
