At least two Iowa parks are holding “Bald Eagle Days” events today and tomorrow. Saylorville Lake and Lake Red Rock are each offering a variety of educational events and chances to see the majestic birds up-close.Tracy Spry is a park ranger at Lake Red Rock, near Pella. In addition to hourly presentations, she says there will also be a descendant of the Yaqui Nation singing Native American songs and telling stories. Spry says if you’ve never before seen an eagle in flight, it’s truly something beautiful to behold.Telescopes and viewing scopes will be set up and trained staff will be on hand to help visitors locate bald eagles. With the unusually warm winter we’ve had in Iowa so far, Spry says viewing of eagles at Lake Red Rock was actually better in January.There are activities at both lakes through the afternoon today and again tomorrow (Saturday) from ten to five. There is -no- admission charge.
