Birds of Kentucky: Eagle Watch Weekends scheduled in KY Parks
All the Eagle Watch Weekends are before next Great Backyard Bird Count, February 17-20, 2012
By Gil Lawson
News from Kentucky Department of Parks
FRANKFORT, KY - Nature lovers should be making plans for a unique Kentucky State Park tradition - Eagle Watch Weekends in January and February 2012.
The park system will sponsor this wildlife-watching opportunity as bald eagles gather around the major lakes of western Kentucky looking for food. The park tours allow you to observe and learn about these beautiful birds of prey.
For four decades, the Kentucky State Parks have offered Eagle Watch Weekends, a chance to view the eagles from land and water and learn about the national symbol and other wildlife.
The tours take place at three resort parks during weekends in January and February, on an excursion yacht and by van. They are led by state park naturalists and Department of Fish and Wildlife biologists.
Ticket prices for the tours range from $20 to $55 a person. Most tours last from two to three and one-half hours. The weekends also include an evening program on birds of prey.The parks, phone numbers and dates for the 2012 Eagle Watch Weekends are:
The Eagle Watch Weekends at Kentucky Dam Village, Lake Barkley and Kenlake will include an option to view eagles from the CQ Princess, a 96-foot yacht. Guests can view eagles from inside the CQ Princess or from outside decks.
Any group or organization interested in a special cruise on the CQ Princess should call Tammy Nanney at Kenlake at 1-800-325-0143 for details. GIL LAWSON
