Celebrate Eagles along the Fox River and on Geneva Lake.
Winter is a perfect time to see eagles in the wild as they congregate to feed near the open waters at dams along the Fox River and on open spots on lakes. In Search of Eagles outdoor event will be held at four sites on Saturday morning. In Search of Eagles will be held from 8 to 10 am at the McHenry Dam, the Algonquin Dam and the Carpentersville Dam on the Fox River in Illinois and at the Williams Bay Boat Launch on Geneva Lake in Wisconsin. Representatives from Friends of Hackmatack National Wildlife Refuge, Geneva Lake Environmental Agency, Illinois Department of Natural Resources, Kettle Moraine Land Trust, McHenry County Conservation District, McHenry County Audubon and Friends of Moraine Hills State Park will help search for eagles and identify other birds using the river and the lake. Attendees are asked to dress for the weather and to bring their own binoculars if they have a pair, but binoculars are not needed to enjoy seeing birds in the wild. Detailed maps to all locations can be found at tinyurl.com/InSearchofEagles2023. (photo credit:https://hackmatacknwr.org/in-search-of-eagles-2023/)
