Eagle Walk at Millerton Lake

Contributed by: Five-A-Day + Walking Program
Date: 2/26/10

            Our fifth annual Eagle Walk was held at Millerton Lake on January 14, 2010.  We had 48 participants.  Mike Smith, Millerton Lake Biologist helped us enjoy six eagle sightings as we walked two miles around the lake.  Just before we sat down to eat our healthy pot luck lunch an eagle flew over us to bless our gathering.  We learn more each year about our bald eagles.  Did you know eagles can swim?  They dip their wings (6ft. span) in the water and use them like paddles.  The weather was perfect, sunny and cool.  Lyda Kipp Duran was our senior walker at 83 years old.
