The Oklahoma Wildlife Department is inviting the public to attend a bald eagle watch this winter for a chance to see eagles and learn about the life, history and recovery story of our nation's symbol. Each winter large numbers of migrant eagles congregate at Oklahoma lakes and rivers to hunt fish and other prey. Over 30 dates at area lakes have been set for this winter at several eagle watching hot spots. Most watches are held in January when the Oklahoma bald eagle population is at its peak. Log on to wildlifedepartment.com for a compiled list of watch dates, locations and contact information. Be sure to contact the individual watch host for more information including any registration requirements.
Area watches are slated for Jan. 10 at Greenleaf State Park. Call 918-487-7125 for more information. Watches are scheduled for Jan. 10 and 24 at Sequoyah State Park. Call 918-772-2108 for more information.
