Baby eagles put on a show at Glendalough State Park

The resident bald eagles at Glendalough State Park in Battle Lake, Minn., are once again proud parents, according to Park Manager Jeff Wiersma. Park visitors will have the opportunity to view the adults and their three energetic offspring on Saturdays in June.

Programs start at 10 a.m. at the Glendalough trail center.

Participants will watch a short video and hike about one mile to view the active nest. Because eagles can be sensitive to human activity during the nesting/fledgling period, the park has taken measures to insure that this program will not disturb the adults or young. Using the park’s spotting scope, visitors will get a close-up view of these birds from a safe distance.

Programs will be canceled in the event of heavy rain or nest failure. Groups should make special arrangements. Call the park at 218-864-0110 for more information.
