Eagle Hike #2 Sunday 2/12/17!

Annually we adventure during the month of February to see some American Bald Eagles and scenic Northeast Kansas in the winter. We will be visiting two different locations near eagle’s nests which should allow us to see Eagles flying and perching in the trees.

This year our Saturday Eagle Hike sold out in under 24 hours!  Yay, so exciting to have so many people ready to GO OUTSIDE!  In fact, we are SO excited that we’ve added a second hike this year!

Eagle Hike #2 is Sunday February 12th.

This hike is not continuous, we will meet at Bobcats Bar and Grill near Ozawkie for check in and a short Eagle info talk, then we will load the Dirty Bus. We will stop at two locations and take a short hike at each in hopes of observing some eagles.

Winter is a great time to observe Eagles and other wildlife or signs of wildlife along the trail. Both locations that we will visit have also provided sightings of deer, turkey, peregrine falcons, wood peckers, terns, ducks and geese as well as other wildlife.

Dirty Girl Adventures has had two “Eagle Hikes” thus far and each has been an ADVENTURE! The first year there was a massive snow storm which turned out to be surprisingly fun! IMG_1440

Everyone was disappointed that we didn’t have a blizzard again last year. 😀 However, we did enjoy a day of hiking and saw several American Bald Eagles. We hiked today and saw eagles at two locations – they are amazing! The fellowship of spending the day together is pretty awesome also!

In addition to the wildlife, we will be spending the afternoon together enjoying each other and nature. It’s what we do!  A walk in the woods along the river and the lake does a body and soul good!

We will end the day at Bobcats around 4 with food, drinks and fellowship – time around the campfire seemed potentially chilly!
