Friends of Kaw Point Park is hosting its first ever Eagle Days on Friday and Saturday in Kansas City, Kan.
Kaw Point, in the Fairfax Levee district at 1 River City Drive, has been the site of an increasing number of eagle sightings this year, said Mike Caldwell, a member of the Kaw Point Park board.
Eagles roost at the confluence of the Kansas and Missouri rivers from about Dec. 15 through March 1. The churning waters provide oxygen, and openings in the ice bring Asian carp to the surface.
“This presents the perfect conditions for families of bald eagles to catch an easy meal,” Caldwell said.
School groups are invited to visit Friday, and the general public can visit from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. Park in the upper lot, dress warmly and bring binoculars. For more information, call 913-677-7752.
