Eagle cam originator speaks in Fort Langley

David Hancock is the originator of the eagle nest cams that have been a huge hit online.

Pilot, film producer and author, as well as noted biologist, conservationist, and publisher, David Hancock will be guest speaker of the Derby Reach Brae Island Parks Association at the Fort Langley Community Hall on Friday, Feb. 21 at 7:30 p.m.

Hancock is well known as the originator of the Eagle Nest Cams, and will be delivering a Power Point presentation on “The Wondrous Return of the Bald Eagle.”  With a distinguished track record of more than 50 years of teaching and lecturing about wildlife and wildlife habitat, Hancock has found new acclaim and exponentially larger audiences bringing the domestic lives of eagles right into the homes of viewers.

With a healthy presence of eagles in the lower reaches of the Fraser River, these magnificent birds are frequently spotted while walking the river trails through Derby Reach and Brae Island Regional Parks.  Soaring in the skies, hunting along the river, calling to a mate or guarding a nest, the eagles are resident year round and spectacular to watch.   Find out where a prominent eagle nest can be spotted from the trails in Derby —from a respectful distance, of course.

This is a free event, hosted by the association, and is open to the public. Hancock’s presentation will be preceded by a short annual general meeting.
