Friends of Noxubee Invite the Public to an Eagle Watch

Have you ever seen an eaglet? Whether you have or have not, eaglets are always enjoyable to watch. On
Saturday April 12th, you have the opportunity to observe an active eagle nest. Hours are from 2:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. Experienced Friends birders will be on hand to take you to the nest and assist you in viewing the action. You are encouraged to bring your own binoculars but doing so is not a requirement. Spotting scopes will be set up and some binoculars will be available. A relatively short, easy walk is necessary to reach the viewing site. Refuge staff will be driving an ATV cart for those who need assistance reaching the site. So bring the entire family. If you are lucky, you will see the parents bring in a fish or other food for their young. The event begins at the Checking Station just west of Bluff Lake. To reach the station, turn left on the first road after leaving the lake.
