Bald Eagle watchers not disappointed at Hood Park

Posted: Updated:

BURBANK, Wash. -- The staff at  McNary National Wildlife Refuge invited people to come look at the majestic birds of prey, the Bald Eagle.

More than 50 people showed up to the Education Center to learn more about America's National Symbol.  The day began with a PBS film and then the Services Manager, Sue McDonald from the Mid-Columbia River National Wildlife Refuge Complex took everyone in a caravan to see the majestic birds of prey.  One was spotted by onlookers at Hood Park.

She say it's the perfect weather to see the once endangered species.

"We've got so many of them around the area.  If this water was open we'd probably see more around here, but because its not, the eagles are concentrated around the river areas where there's ducks and geese gathered," says McDonald.

Several avid bird watchers say the best place in our area to see bald eagles is in Sacajawea Park.
