Seeing a bald eagle in the wild can be a majestic experience and every year local biologists facilitate the opportunity. The Division of Wildlife Resources is celebrating Utah Bald Eagle Day in February on State Route 149 just below the road to the Dinosaur Quarry. The staging area will be located just inside the Dinosaur National Monument boundary where displays and spotting scopes will be available for the first chance to spot bald eagles or other raptors in the distance. From there, biologists will direct visitors to other sites for a better view of eagles and other wildlife. In years past visitors have enjoyed observing eagles, falcons, hawks, mule deer, river otters, turkeys, sandhill cranes, porcupines, Canada geese and other wildlife. During certain times during the day, local falconer Melissa Wardel will have her hawk at the staging area for attendees to get an up close look at a bird of prey. Annual Utah Bald Eagle Day is Saturday, February 11th.
