Eagle Watch 2014
More than 800 people came to view the birds at the 19th Annual Eagle Watch Event at Round Butte Overlook Park in Culver this winter. It was a weekend of mostly blue skies, beautiful birds and great hot dogs! The annual celebration honored the eagles and other raptors that call the Lake Billy Chinook area home and featured a wide variety of activities designed to explore the natural and cultural significance of the birds. The event hosted by the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, Portland Gas and Electric and the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs.
Event coordinators would like to thank all the partner agencies, companies and event volunteers for your dedication, passion and enthusiasm you brought to the event. Special thanks go out to the Telecom Pioneers. This is the group that has been cooking up your Eagle Watch Hot Dogs for nineteen years. This year’s highlights were live birds of prey from the Sunriver Nature Center and the Quartz Creek Drummers and Dancers. Children got to make puppets, bird houses, bird masks, enter coloring contests, catch fish with their “talons,” pick grubs from a tree with their “beaks,” and go on a scavenger hunt through the Eagle Village.
