Bald Eagle Day is Feb 7 and Feb 14

Many bald eagles spend the winter in Utah and the big birds are easy to see at key spots around the state. The eagles attract considerable public interest and so Utah's Division of Wildlife Resources sponsors viewing events to help people observe and learn about them.

People who want to see eagles are encouraged to bring binoculars or spotting scopes to viewing events. Biologists will be on hand to answer questions and point people in the right direction, and they will have optical equipment for use by people who don't bring their own.

Bald Eagle Day is Utah DWR's most popular viewing event. There is no cost to participate. Viewing times are 9 am to 4 pm, except at the Salt Creek Waterfowl Management Area site, where viewing will take place from 10 am to 3 pm.

Feb 7 locations:
Fountain Green State Fish Hatchery in Central Utah
Split Mountain/Green River in NE Utah
Rush Lake Ranch in southern Utah

Feb 14 locations:
Salt Creek Waterfowl Management Area (Compton's Knoll) in northern Utah
Farmington Bay Waterfowl Management Area in northern Utah
