Bald eagles explained

| December 23, 2010 8:00 PM

All you want to know about bald eagles and other birds of prey, you can find out on Sunday.

Jane Fink Cantwell, a raptor biologist, will be giving a live demonstration and lecture on the majestic birds from 11 a.m. to noon in The Coeur d'Alene Resort convention center.

She'll have eagles, hawks, owls and falcons on hand, and talk about the lives of wintry birds.

There will even be a Swainson's hawk, which is a long distance bird that normally winters in Argentina.

Cantwell called the program a "rare look"with a scientist presenting live birds of prey followed by a cruise to view bald eagles.

"It's a winning combination if you're teaching people to appreciate the ecology of raptors," he said.

Cantwell will be assisted by a trained handler.

Tickets for the one hour lecture are $10. Guests taking the eagle cruise can attend the lecture for $5 with their full price cruise ticket, which are available in The Resort business center.
