Annual Eagle Watch Weekend planned at Lake Monroe

The 13th annual Eagle Watch Weekend at Lake Monroe will be Friday through Feb. 3 at Eagle Pointe Golf Resort, 2220 E. Pointe Road, Bloomington.

Organizer Jeff Riegel, director of Bird Country US, said eagles can be seen daily at Lake Monroe, making this a good event for anyone who has never had the chance to see an eagle.

The event will begin Friday with the eighth annual Eagle Watch Weekend Bird Count and end with a more advanced bird outing Feb. 3. In between, there will be several other outings, all led by local birding and eagle experts, plus programs on bald eagle biology, the basics of birding, alternative breeding systems in birds and more.
