Utah Division of Wildlife Resources reminds the public that next month is the best time to catch a glimpse of the national bird, the bald eagle. February is Bald Eagle Month in Utah. During the winter months the bald eagle flies to Utah to get away from the colder northern conditions and find food. By February, hundreds of eagles are in the state boundaries.
On Saturday, February 2nd
, there will be an eagle viewing at the Ouray National Wildlife Refuge in Randlett. It will
start at 9am
. If you have your own scopes, please plan on bringing them. Matt Bartley, DWR Wildlife Recreation Coordinator, says spotting scopes will be available at each viewing site so you can get a good look at the eagles. “If you have any challenges spotting the eagles,” he says, “our biologists and volunteers will help you find them. We’d also be happy to answer any questions you have.” Be sure to bring warm clothes, waterproof boots and a good camera.
