Bald Eagle Workshop
I got this info from AZ Game and Fish.......

Annual bald eagle workshop in Flagstaff

Did you know that Arizona is visited by more than 200 bald eagles during the winter? Eagles migrate through Arizona every year, providing great opportunities to view our national symbol. To learn more interesting facts about bald eagles and where to see them in northern Arizona, attend the Arizona Game and Fish Department's annual bald eagle workshop on Feb. 17 or 24. The workshop is part of a free ongoing speaker series on Arizona's wonderful wild creatures.

"We are excited to continue the speaker series for several more months," says Arizona Game and Fish Department Public Information Officer Shelly Shepherd. "So far, the public seems very excited to learn about Arizona's wildlife, and we hope that continues."

The workshop will be hosted by the Arizona Game and Fish Department and the Coconino National Forest. The event will be held four times: on Feb. 17 at 9 a.m. and at 1 p.m., and on Feb. 24 at 9 a.m. and at 1 p.m. Each event will include a lecture followed by a field trip to view eagles.

The lectures will be held on the Northern Arizona University campus in the Southwest Forest Science Complex, Building #82. That building is located on the south end of campus at 2500 S. Pine Knoll Drive. The field trip will include a drive down Lake Mary Road.

The guest speakers are James Driscoll, Arizona Game and Fish Department bald eagle management coordinator, and Cecelia Overby, a USDA Forest Service biologist. They will talk about wintering bald eagles, Arizona's resident eagle population, and the state's eagle management program.

Anyone interested in attending will need to register with the Game and Fish Flagstaff office by calling (928) 774-5045. Participants are reminded to dress appropriately and to bring binoculars, bird field guidebooks, snacks and water.

Future topics in the yearlong Flagstaff-area speaker series will include boating safety, venomous reptiles, fishing in the high country, and urban wildlife. For more information on upcoming speaker series events, visit azgfd.gov.

Bald Eagles
Not to forget that NAAS is hosting a special Bald Eagle program Thursday, February 15th meeting @ 7:00PM in Flagstaff at the Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church at 1601 N. San Francisco. And, Wednesday, Feb 21st meeting @ 7:00PM in Sedona at the Jewish Community Center. Cecelia Overby, Wildlife and Fisheries Manager for the Coconino Nat'l Forest, will present the slide/lecture and answer questions. She co-ordinates the mid-winter Bald Eagle Survey - consisting of 17 different routes on the Coconino and is a Bald Eagle expert.

Originally this program was planned for NAAS January meetings, but another presenter had conflicts which made it necessary to push the Bald Eagle program forward to February. Although this makes for several eagle presentations within a few days time, the interest seems great enough to warrant several programs.
