Bald Eagle Days
The 12th Annual Quad City Bald Eagle Watch will be held this weekend, Friday through Sunday, at the QCCA Expo Center in Rock Island.
Thousands of local school children and other area residents turn out each year to see eagles, and other live birds of prey, and related exhibits. There are also excellent locations to view eagles "in the wild" - from LeClaire Park in Davenport, on the western tip of Arsenal Island, and from the bike path in downtown Rock Island.
Other sites include Credit Island in Davenport, and at Lock and Dam 14 in LeClaire.
The annual bald eagle watch in Clinton will also be held this weekend, on Saturday - with educational programs and exhibits at Clinton Community College, and eagle watching at Lock and Dam 13 near Fulton.
