HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (LCSP) - If your spine tingles at the sight of an eagle soaring majestically, then you’re aware of the unique combination of beauty and efficient design that sets these birds apart from other winged creatures. While soaring at 500ft, it can spot a fish from a mile away, and then swoop down to it at 100 miles per hour. Don’t think it’s necessary to travel to far-off places to see an eagle in the wild. Arkansas is a favorite wintering ground for bald eagles, and they are seen in nearly every part of the Natural State.
Lake Catherine State Park celebrates their arrival with the Bald Eagle Bonanza Event. This will be your chance to get out and see eagles, various other birds of prey, and migratory birds in the wild as expert Rangers, Naturalists, and Park Interpreters take you within viewing distance. Other common sightings on the tours include ospreys, waterfowl, herons, loons, owls, and other winter wildlife.
