Did you know that in some years Arizona is visited by more than 200 bald eagles during the winter?
To learn more about bald eagles, sign up for the Arizona Game and Fish Department’s annual bald eagle workshop in Flagstaff on Saturday, Feb. 19.
The free workshop will be divided into two sessions; each one will include an informative lecture followed by a field trip to observe eagles. The first session will begin at 9 a.m. and the second at 11 a.m. The lectures will be held at the Game and Fish office at 3500 S. Lake Mary Road.
Biologists from the department will discuss bald eagle management and research in Arizona. The day will also include the opportunity to see a live bald eagle up close and personal, and a chance to talk with dedicated individuals from Liberty Wildlife Rehabilitation Foundation.
Anyone interested in attending will need to register with the Game and Fish Flagstaff office at (928) 774-5045 by 3 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 18.
People are reminded to dress appropriately for weather conditions, bring binoculars, bird field guidebooks, snacks and water.
