BALD EAGLE PRESENTATION AT CARLYLE LAKE

Bald Eagles have been sighted recently in increasingly large numbers at Carlyle Lake.  The population of Bald Eagles has steadily increased in Illinois over the past several years due to federal laws and conservation efforts to save the majestic bird of prey. Sunday, February 13, at 1:30 p.m., the World Bird Sanctuary will present a program entitled “All About Eagles” at the Carlyle Lake Visitor Center.  A live Bald Eagle will be on display for an up-close view of the beautiful bird.  After the presentation, you may view eagles at various locations around Carlyle Lake. Bring your binoculars and dress appropriately for the weather.
