The video was part of the Hancock Wildlife Foundation’s Bald Eagle Tracking Alliance Project. Its aim is to keep count of how many eagles there are.

Back in November, the world’s largest gathering of bald eagles took place in Harrison Mills. The area is an agricultural farming and tourism-based community in the District of Kent west of Agassiz, British Columbia.

Bald eagles gather there every November to feast on salmon.
