Starving bald eagles are falling out of the sky in the Comox Valley, a wildlife expert says.
Maj Birch, manager of the Mountainaire Avian Rescue Society, is caring for seven eagles.
Several others had died before they could be helped, she said.
"This is the most we have ever had," Birch said. "Many of them are downed before they are brought in. They are on the ground and they're too weak to fly away.
