2023 Post Covid — EAGLES and the FESTIVAL are BACK

This year’s Festival is:  Saturday Nov 25 & Sunday Nov 26

With most of the FVBEF Committee retiring during the Covid challenge we have been waiting to reorganize local community support.  We have finally got some key community people to meet, reform the FVBEF Committee and organize some events for the 2023 late November – early December gathering of the eagles on the Harrison Flats.

Events:   to be expanded – watch here.

  • Free Public Viewing:  All day at the World’s biggest display of Eagles, the Gazebo Lookout at the Sandpiper Golf Course, just north of Highway 7 at the Morris Valley Road, will be our eagle experts with telescopes and tidbits of info.  Come all!
  • Free Lecture:   1330 (1:30PM) at the Harrison Mills Hall on School Road just east of the H7 crossing.  David Hancock will present Free:
    Why the Harrison Eagles Invasion”


 Two other events are anticipated but not yet confirmed:

  1. Boat tours of the River – to put the eagles at your boat deck – fee $ – nyd
  2. Second lecture 1100 at same Harrison Mills Hall site – also Free.


NOTE:   Anyone wishing to attend a bald eagle release at the Sandpiper on Wednesday November 22 at 11 am can just attend.  This will be a press release of a Bald Eagle carrying a transmitter which will allow anyone in the world to follow this bird on its North American journeys on our web site:  see
