Skagit River Eagles Are a World Famous Attraction

The incredible migration and habitation by the Bald Eagles on the Upper Skagit River is a remarkable tourist attraction. 

The eagles are attracted to the area each year by the migration of the salmon.  It is very easy to spot the huge birds throughout the area as they feast on salmon.

Seattle arborist and wildlife enthusiast Michael Oxman captured this image there today.

It's wonderful to see the eagles have made a comeback from near extinction. It's a sight that inspires hope for this new year and for all the creatures that need some help to get back to a healthy number.
