It’s all about eagles today as the third annual Arlington-Stillaguamish Eagle Festival takes place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. with eagle viewings at the Port Susan Bay Nature Conservancy.

Guest speakers and bird viewings also are set for 11:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the City Council chambers, 110 E. Third St., and a 3 p.m. bird-watching walk is planned at Portage Creek Wildlife Sanctuary, 5427 Cemetery Road.

A Fishy Scavenger Hunt for kids takes place downtown. Look for “starter” clues for the hunt at the festival’s art show, which will be set up at 103 E. Third St.

Also for the festival, Arlington Library staff members will be in the same area as the art festival, ready with activities to celebrate the city’s heritage, starting at 10 a.m. today.
