There will be lots of activities, workshops, and eagle-viewing for all participants at this great annual festival. I will be giving a talk called “Birding by Impression” at 9:00 a.m. Saturday, where I’ll be helping people learn how to identify birds when you can’t see their field marks! But there are great presenters all weekend (Friday through Sunday)… check out the full schedule here: https://www.visitbloomington.com/eaglesovermonroe/schedule/.
Eagles over Monroe festival celebrates the close relationship that Monroe Lake has with these majestic birds. Monroe Lake was the site of Indiana’s Bald Eagle reintroduction program. In the 30 years since, Bald Eagles have survived and thrived, becoming our lake’s signature bird. In more recent years, they have been joined by small numbers of Golden Eagles, which have learned that Monroe Lake is the perfect place to spend their winter.
This unique special event dives into the lives of eagles and other raptors: tour the lake to see eagles in the wild, learn about recent research, meet live raptors, explore bird biology, and explore new ways to enhance your enjoyment of birds at Monroe Lake. Programs are accessible to both beginners and experienced birders, adults, and children. Bring your family, bring your friends, and join us for Eagles over Monroe! Register now!
