There's a dead sea-lion on the beach a few kilometres East of the harbour. A number of wolves have been seen feeding on its carcass. Most days this time of year bald eagles are all over the place in the harbour, however, lately they have been a little scarce around Tofino in the mid-day; I think they're probably feeding on the same carcass.
Often there's a couple of eagles perched on the cabled 'Eik' tree next to the booking office at Jamie's Whaling Station where I work and book from. Often this Summer other eagles are perched on the boat masts, I've never noticed that before in Tofino.
Yesterday at Deadman's Island I saw one of the two eaglets out of the nest for the first time. The old nest had fallen out of it's tree last Oct. and the two resident eagles rebuilt on last Jan. on the Islet slightly closer to Tofino.
