Bald eagle display scheduled

The Division of Wildlife Services will hold a bald eagle viewing event across the state this weekend. The free public events will be held in the local area at two different locations.

•Green River north of Jensen. To reach the site, drive north from Highway 40 in Jensen on the road (SR-149) leading to the Dinosaur Quarry in Dinosaur National Monument. First stop should be at the staging area, a large pull-out just inside the monument boundary, where displays and spotting scopes await. From the staging area, Division biologists can direct viewers to other sites where visitors may get better views of the eagles and other wildlife of interest. In past years, visitors have seen bald and golden eagles feeding, as well as deer, river otters, pheasants, sandhill cranes, porcupines, turkeys, Canada geese and other waterfowl.

•Gordon Creek, along Consumer's Road, between Helper and Price. To reach the viewing site, take U. S. Highway 6 to Consumer's Road, which is just north of the Carbon County Golf Course. Travel west on Consumer's Road for about nine miles to the Gordon Creek Wildlife Management Area. Viewing will run from 8 a.m. to noon. Fewer bald eagles are expected at the site this year than past years, which may be due to unusually mild winter conditions in their summer range to the north. Visitors should dress for frigid temperatures and breezy conditions. Consumer's Road is plowed regularly, but will be icy. Watch out for other vehicles, especially around curves. No live birds will be exhibited at the site this year.
