BALD EAGLES OF POINT ROBERTS
Jeff Butts has been monitoring the Bald Eagles of Point Roberts for 13 years. There are about 15 active breeding territories there and his research has involved in-depth interactions and communication with 3 breeding pairs. He teaches people about eagle behavior and how to best view, photograph and live around them. He also touches on eagle history in the Salish Sea and some of the issues eagles face today.
He got involved with eagles on a full time basis in 2007, when he noticed nobody was looking out for them and that there were many questions which didn’t seem to have answers. He realized their eagles needed help and found most people knew nothing about them and so didn’t understand his concern. In the course of finding answers and help for their eagles, he was drawn into their lives and found them fascinating subjects. He now feels it’s important to share his story and long journey in understanding exactly how wild eagles live.
