POSTPONED! – Birdwatch for Bald Eagles at Jordan Lake Dam

A Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) taking off.

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FEBUARY 13TH AT 2PM.

Join us for an eagle spotting trip at the Jordan Lake Dam, 2060 Jordan Dam Rd, Moncure, NC, on January 23, 2022. Jordan Lake is home to a large number of permanent resident eagle pairs and in the winter the population grows to one of the largest on the East Coast with the arrival of migratory eagles. Although we cannot 100% guarantee a sighting, our chances of seeing one or maybe a few are pretty good! The wintering eagles are usually solo and immature eagles that are not yet sporting their white feathers. Fun fact: Did you know it takes 5 years for a Eagle to get their white head and tail feathers?

We will meet at the parking lot for the Tailrace fishing area along the Haw River at 1:00 p.m. Stay to the right when you come to the Y intersection on Jordan Dam Rd, then take a right turn when you come to the dead end at the dam gate and parking lot will be down on left. We will walk along the top of the dam and along the riverbank looking for birds. Please wear appropriate footwear, dress for the weather, and bring water and binoculars if you have a pair. A spotting scope will also be set up to share. Please RSVP below to let us know you will be coming.

We are at capacity for this event, but please watch for many more events coming up soon! Click the Subscribe button at the bottom of this page to stay up to date on future happenings.
