Where to See Bald Eagles in PA
The best resource to find out where to see bald eagles in PA is the Delaware Highlands Conservancy, a non-profit dedicated to protecting our beautiful land and the wildlife therein. The Conservancy has merged with The Eagle Institute, an iconic organization focused on growing the eagle population of the area and sustaining their habitat.
Today, the Delaware Highlands Conservancy has outlined the best places in the area to observe eagles, from their nesting areas to their hunting and herding grounds on the Lackawaxen River. Simply visit the Conservancy’s headquarters in Lackawaxen, PA, to ask questions and grab one of the free maps and brochures. From there, you can follow the trails outlined on the map to find the designated viewing areas. It is open on weekends in January and February.
If you’d like to go eagle-watching solo, Lake Wallenpaupack is a great place to start! Bald eagles have been returning to a small island on the lake, Kipp Island, year after year. During the bald eagle nesting season, which takes place in the summer, the island closes to the public to allow these birds to raise their young. This is because bald eagles mate for life, with pairs returning to the same area each year to lay eggs. The local community is dedicated to providing these birds a safe and secure place to live during their nesting months.
