First Annual Eagle Days at Kaw Point Park

Eagle PairThe first annual Eagle Days at Kaw Point Park in the Fairfax District was held Friday, Jan 30 and Saturday, Jan 31.  According to Mike Calwell, a volunteer of the Friends of Kaw Point Park, “over 200 people attended. There was a good number (of eagles) that visited the park those days but we typically saw between 3 and 5 at any one time. They were actively feeding on fish so we got to see a lot of aerial acrobatics.  They were spectacular.”  The official dates for "best watching opportunities" are Dec 15th thru March 1st.  So, there is still time to see the eagles throughout February.Eagle in flight

The next annual event will be held January 29th & 30th, 2016.
