Bald Eagle Watch Weekend to have many bird-related programs this year

Bald Eagle Watch Weekend is next Saturday and Sunday, January 25 and 26. The Illinois Audubon Society is having events at Starved Rock Lodge, the state park’s visitors center, and the Illinois Waterway Visitors Center each day.

Jo Fessett, with the society, says instead of driving from one to the other, you could take the Starved Rock Trolley for $2.

The shows this year will cover subjects like owls, pigeons as messengers in wartime, nature photography, and falconry. There’s a full schedule at this link.
