Spring’s about a month away and one of the final bald eagle-watching events of the season is planned for today (Saturday) at Lake Red Rock in south-central Iowa. Park ranger Tracy Spry says free programs are underway all day at Iowa’s largest lake to educate people about the magnificent birds. There are hourly presentations at the park’s community center featuring a live bald eagle and other birds of prey, running hourly from 10 A.M. until 4 P.M. Nearby, the Pella Community Center is also hosting officials from the I-S-U Wildlife Care Center, showing off more live birds of prey. Spry says the number of bald eagles has slacked off a little this winter. They’re spread out this year and she’s seen them on the ice looking for fish. It’s not uncommon to see up to ten of them below the dam on any given day. For more information, surf to “lakeredrock.org” or call (641) 828-7522.
