It’s time to see some spectacular birds this weekend as the 18th annual "Eagle Watch" is happening near Madras.

 

Paul Patton with the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department says Lake Billy Chinook is home to 10 breeding pairs of both bald and golden eagles.  "It’s a celebration of the resident bald and golden eagles that live in and about the area of Lake Billy Chinook. And then in the wintertime, from January to March, those birds are joined by migratory bald eagles from up further north in Canada."

 

The event kicks off at 10 a.m. Saturday at the "Eagle Village” near the Visitor Center at Round Butte Overlook, and runs through Sunday.

 

Patton says to be sure to bring warm clothes, binoculars and a camera.  There will be games, guided bird walks, prize drawings and a lot more.  The event is free.
