Bald Eagle Nesting Guided Hike
Saturday, January 20: 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Join us for a unique opportunity to view our bald eagle population at its peak! Our guided hike travels to the gazebo and back.
The habitat of Barr Lake's wildlife refuge is perfect for one pair of nesting bald eagles. It has large old cottonwoods for roosting, rich food sources, and little disturbance.
In January, eagles begin courtship behavior including tumbling in mid-air, nest building, and staying close together. In mid-February, and often coinciding with Valentine's Day, bald eagles lay one to three eggs. The parents take turns incubating the eggs, so you are practically guaranteed to see an eagle on the nest. If all goes well, eaglets hatch in late March or early April.
