Eagle Count

A weekly eagle count for the stretch of the Skagit River from Marblemount to Rockport is listed below. Many thanks to Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest staff for providing this data. The count includes only eagles that are actually seen by experienced personnel and includes those seen in areas inaccessible to the general public. During the peak viewing season of mid-December to late January, you might be able to see as many as 100 eagles from Highway 20.
