Eagle Watching at Starved Rock State Park in Utica
Jan. 1-Feb. 28, 2014 in Utica, Illinois
During the winter months, thousands of eagles migrate south from Canada, and Illinois serves as one of the greatest populations of wintering bald eagles.
Get a glimpse of these majestic birds at the Starved Rock Lodge, which offers a “Bald Eagle Trolley Tour” on specific days of the week.
For more chances to catch an eagle in flight, head to Starved Rock State Park for Eagle Watch Weekend, which features fun activities at the lodge and the Illinois Waterway Visitors Center. Be sure to bundle up, as the top of the 125-foot-tall Starved Rock serves as one of the best viewing spots.
