Bald Eagles in a tree

Bird watchers flock to Squamish primarily because this is one of the world's best places to observe bald eagles in their natural habitat.

On top of that, nearly 60 other species of birds live along the Squamish River, including the likes of cormorants, mergansers, and herons.

Brackendale Eagles Provincial Park

Visit Brackendale Eagles Provincial Park between November and February to see the highest concentration of wintering bald eagles in North America. The peak period is in December and January. The Brackendale eagle count, conducted by local volunteers, has become an tradition on the first Sunday of January each year since 1985. In 1994, a world-record count of 3,769 eagles was achieved.

What brings the eagles to Brackendale is the annual chum salmon run in the glacier-fed Squamish and Cheakamus Rivers, with as many as 300,000 salmon coming here to spawn and die by the start of January.
