Eagle Watch Weekend

  • Fairfax State Recreation Area
  • Lake Monroe
  • Bloomington, IN 47401

This annual weekend event held in late January or early February features three days of birding and wildlife programs.  Though the focus is on those elusive bald eagles, Eagle Watch Weekend also features programming on other birds and wildlife native to the Monroe Lake area.  Enjoy live animal presentation, special children's activities and eagle viewing caravans to some of Monroe Lake's eagle sighting "hot spots!" Monroe Lake is Indiana's premier birding location and the grey skies and wintry landscape mean that eagles are easier to spot during winter than any other season!
