Eagle Watch Dates Set

05 Oct 2021 11:54 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The Bald Eagle has been the national emblem of the United States since 1782 and for native Americans a spiritual symbol for far longer than that.  These majestic raptors (Birds of prey) are seen migrating through northwest Arkansas November through February, mainly around bodies of water since fish are the main element of their diet.

An easy, comfortable way to view and get photos of these gorgeous birds is on one of the eagle watch tours offered by Hobbs State Park – Conservation Area on beautiful Beaver Reservoir.  Many dates are available this eagle watch season.

November: 6, 7, 13, 14, 27, 28
December: 4, 5, 18, 19, 23, 26, 27, 31

January:  1, 2, 3, 8, 9, 15, 16, 17, 22, 23, 29, 30
February: 5, 6, 12, 13, 19, 20, 21, 26, 27
