"The Eagles of Brackendale

The bald eagle is the only eagle unique to North America. The bald eagle's scientific name signifies a sea (halo) eagle (aeetos) with a white (leukos) head. At one time, the word "bald" meant "white," not hairless. The bald eagle is found over most of North America, from Alaska and Canada to northern Mexico. About half of the world's 70,000 bald eagles live in Alaska. Combined with British Columbia's population of about 20,000, the northwest coast of North America is by far their greatest stronghold. They flourish here in part because of the salmon. Dead or dying fish are an important food source for all bald eagles.

The Squamish River Valley has long been recognized as one of the most significant areas of wintering bald eagles in North America. In the 1994 bird count, Squamish had the world record count of 3,769 eagles. The river’s riparian area provides suitable habitat for roosting, perching and feeding. The prolific runs of chum salmon in the Squamish, Cheakamus, and Mamquam rivers attract eagles from all over the Pacific Northwest from November to February each year.

Brackendale Eagles Provincial Park lies in the Squamish River watershed within the rugged terrain of the Coast Mountains. As the Squamish River drains through the Pacific Ranges to the coast it has carved a deep low-level valley.

Brackendale is a small community in the Canadian province of British Columbia just north of Squamish town centre, but still within the District of Squamish. It is located near the confluence of the Squamish River and the Cheakamus River. It is intersected primarily by Government Road and Depot Road. The CN railway (formerly BC Rail) traverses it north–south. It includes the remarkable "'Eagle Run" area, the wintering home of thousands of Bald eagles." The above is a quote from Richard Krentz.
