What a fantastic weekend we had at Eagle Watch Weekend 2015. The Fourwinds resort was amazing and all the participants saw bald eagles. In fact, on the Friday morning bird count, the first bird at our first stop was a juvenile Bald Eagle. What a way to start the weekend. The surprise bird for the weekend was probably the lone Snow Goose. The surprise was the adult bald eagle that had it for lunch and we were able to watch it all from the patio in back of the Fourwinds! Final species tally for the weekend was a very respectable 49 species (scroll down to see the entire event list).

Before we know it, it will be time for the 16th Anniversary Eagle Watch Weekend being held, once again, at the fabulous Fourwinds Resort and Marina, right on Lake Monroe. Check back after this summer to see all that we have planned for the weekend, including some of the tried and true favorites as well as new programs for you who, just like us, just cannot get enough of our fabulous birds. In the mean time, "Like" us on Facebook and keep up with everything going on with the eagles on and around Lake Monroe, the birdwatching capital of Indiana. See you next January!
