Join us for the 26th incarnation of this annual bald eagle spectacle! Eagle Watch 2018 is taking place over two weekends in Sheffield Mills, Nova Scotia - which is the largest winter home of bald eagles in North America east of the Rocky Mountains.
Jan 27-28th and Feb 3-4th are the dates for this spectacular photography and wildlife event. This is one of the closest opportunities to witness these majestic eagles up close while feeding and this event draws photographers & birders from all around the north east of North America!
If you're from out of town we can pick you up at your accommodations or if you live in Halifax, we can meet at the parking lot of Citadel High School bright and early at 6:30 am to head out to towards the Annapolis Valley to make sure we get a great spot at the viewing site.
We are providing licensed return transportation from downtown Halifax in our warm Mercedes passenger van. Your tour guide is a professional local photographer who will offer photography instruction & insight to help you get some fantastic shots - no matter your camera or skill level. If you need to a tripod, monopod or are looking to try out a DSLR and zoom lens we have a rental package available through East Coast Lens Rental.
We visit the local Community Hall after for a delicious pancake and sausage breakfast that's included with this great experience. There will also be local eagle memorabilia for sale while upstairs at the hall there is an annual display of photos, paintings, sculptures, etc. taken from various artists from surrounding areas which are also for sale.
