Kansas rivers, lakes attract eagles in winter

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Bus tours and educational programs are among the activities that are planned in Kansas to celebrate National Bald Eagle Month.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that two events are planned for Jan. 24. At Kaw Valley Eagles Day at Free State High School in Lawrence, participants can dissect owl pellets and go on eagle-viewing field trips. At Raptors Day at Schlagle Library in Kansas City, Kansas, volunteers will have live birds of prey on exhibit, including owls, hawks and falcons.

The activities get underway as bald eagles start appearing at Kansas reservoirs and rivers to search for fish. State wildlife officials say that good spots to view eagles include Perry State Park Lake, Clinton Lake and the Riverfront Plaza below the Bowersock Dam on the Kansas River in Lawrence.
