The annual Bald Eagle Watch at Starved Rock State Park is coming up later this month. I am posting this as a public service to all of the visitors who land on my blog looking for updated information about this event. You can find the details on the Illinois Audubon Society site, or read on.
Bald Eagle Watch Weekend
2012 Dates: January 28-29
Location: Starved Rock Lodge and Illinois Waterway Visitor Center
Events include live raptor programs by the World Bird Sanctuary and the Illinois Raptor Center. There will be other vendors and programs at the event, which takes places at the two different spots noted in the map below. The Illinois Waterway Visitor Center is north of the river; Starved Rock is to the south. See the IAS Bald Eagle Watch Brochure for other events and further details.

I’m sad I can’t attend this wonderful event this year. If you go, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for young Bald Eagles sporting leg bands!
