To reach the site, exit Highway 40 in Jensen onto the road (SR 149) to the Dinosaur Quarry. Travel north to the staging area located just inside the boundary of Dinosaur National Monument. Displays and spotting scopes will be available and you might be able to see bald eagles and other raptors in the distance.
You may also see live birds close up! At least one live bird of prey --likely two-- will be on display at the staging area for part of the day. At noon, there will be a presentation on birds of prey at the Visitor's Center.
From the staging area, biologists will direct you to other sites where you may have better views of eagles and other wildlife of interest. In past years, visitors have seen bald and golden eagles hunting and feeding, as well as prairie falcons, hawks, mule deer, river otters, pheasants, turkeys, sandhill cranes, porcupines, mergansers, Canada geese and other wildlife.
