The Quatse River viewing site lies just south of the town of Port Hardy and overlooks Hardy Bay. On the north coast of Vancouver Island, BC Canada.

Hardy Bay includes the estuaries of the Glen Lyon, Quatse and Quatse Rivers. All five species of Pacific salmon use these rivers to spawn, as do steelhead, cutthroat and Dolly Varden trout. Late summer and fall are the best times to view salmon.

Bald eagles are common year round with the highest density found from September to January.

Other large birds that frequent the Hardy Bay area include: Great blue heron, turkey vulture, red-tailed hawk and osprey. The productivity of this estuary complex draws large numbers of winter migrants; some passing through while others remain throughout the winter. Waterfowl and shorebirds can be found in the hundreds, even thousands during peak times.

Northern shovellers, green-winged teal, gadwall, American widgeon, harlequin ducks, trumpeter swans, hooded mergansers and many more species can be easily viewed from the observation tower.

Hi fellow artist,
When it comes to photography, I just like taking pictures…it’s really that simple.
My main interest is photographing eagles, sunrises, sunsets, and my beautiful little Yorkie (Baby).
I love to create abstract art, and fascinated with angels.
I work lots, which limits my time doing what I love to do. Please take a minute to step inside my world, I hope you like what you see.
Take care always…
