Eagle Days in Lawrence

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) A Lawrence event will give people a chance to learn more about eagles during the raptors’ annual migration.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the Kaw Valley Eagles Day is planned from 9 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. Saturday at Free State High School. Sponsors include the Jayhawk Audobon Society, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Lawrence school district.

Experts will provide wildlife talks while children can participate in nature-inspired activities. Jayhawk Audubon Society president Gary Anderson says one of the most popular Eagles Day activities is dissecting owl pellets, which owls regurgitate after eating something they can’t digest.

Guests also can attend ranger-led eagle viewing field trips at 10:35 a.m. and 3 p.m. Eagles tend to stay in the area around this time of year.
