A wide variety of birds fly over Snohomish real estate, with some of the most majestic being bald eagles. Most people across the country do not have the opportunity to see these beautiful birds as often as residents of the Pacific Northwest. Come to learn more about these amazing creatures at Year of the Eagle: A Year in the Lives of Pacific NW Bald Eagles. This event will take place on Saturday, January 19th from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Snohomish Library.
Join nature photographer and author Kevin Ebi to hear some amazing stories of a group of resident bald eagles. This is a rare group that stays in the same area of the Pacific Northwest year round. This gives people like Kevin a very unique opportunity to study how these birds develop, learn to fly and hunt, and start their own families. Kevin spent three years at one nesting site doing his best to document the story of these bald eagles in their home environment. He used his extensive photography experience to document everything he could and residents of Snohomish real estate have the awesome chance to hear about his time at the site through his pictures and stories. Kevin’s images have been featured by such publishers as National Geographic, BBC Earth, Smithsonian, and Outdoor Photographer. One of his pictures even appeared on a U.S. postage stamp.
If this event spurs your interest in local birds, head out for the next event of Snohomish Winter Birding, a guided winter birding expedition, on Saturday, January 26th, 2019 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. This event starts at the Snohomish Wildlife Refuge and will continue at a few other sites, to which participants can follow in their own vehicle. The Snohomish Valley is home to more than 80 “wintering” bird species. Expect to see swans, geese, ducks, song birds, and even raptors. Be sure to dress warm and be prepared for muddy conditions. Read more about both of these events and keep an eye out for others at Snohomish Winter Birding.
