The Eagle Watch is held in Sheffield Mills, Nova Scotia on the last weekend in January and the first weekend in February each year. Local poultry farmers spread chicken parts into fields to attract the eagles. Many people come to the area on these days to watch and photograph the event. When I arrived at 8:15 am on the Saturday I counted around thirty-five eagles in nearby trees and it took almost an hour for them to come down into the fields to feed. At that point there had to be more than fifty of the birds going after the chicken. The feeding only lasted fifteen to twenty minutes and then they would go back to the trees for another hour or so. I took almost three hundred photos and two of them have been placed on “Birds 2” gallery.
