Bald Eagle Release At Starved Rock

Posted by wlpo on November 12, 2011

Two new bald eagles will soon be soaring above Starved Rock State Park.

Two eaglets will be released into the wild at Plum Island this afternoon.  The bald eagles were rescued earlier this year after their nest was blown down by a storm near Aurora.

Plum Island was picked because the eaglets won’t have to migrate.  Hundreds of bald eagles flock to the island during the winter.

If you want to see the eaglet release, meet up at the Starved Rock Visitor’s Center starting at 11.
