Robert N. Haysenyager Great Salt Lake Nature Center | Part II

It's almost here! Saturday, February 14th is DWR's Bald Eagle Day!  Have you picked out your watching spot yet?  There are actually five different viewing spots throughout Utah.  (See below for more information.)

When The Salt Project went a few weeks ago, we totally saw a Bald Eagle!  First we saw a plane and then I was like "HEYyyyyyyyyy, look an EAGLE!"  We watched it until it became a tiny speck...even though it was a larger speck to begin with. 

According to the Standard Examiner the best time to view the Bald Eagles is between 2 and 4 pm.  Dress warm too, even with these crazy heat spikes. 

The day we went was FREEZING.  It looks so sunny, but had a bitter bite breeze.

We basically walked far enough to get some pictures and then quickly headed (as quickly as my two-year old would allow.) back to the cars.  Oh, those independent two-year olds.  Luckily, she's loves the older kids and will follow them wherever.

Make sure to bring your binoculars, warm clothes, snacks, a telescopic camera lens (I hear) and a good attitude.

It was absolutely freezing the day we went.

This is actually the place you'll go to see the Eagles.  You might see them at the Nature Center above, but we hear they head more toward Farmington Bay.

Even if you don't see a Bald Eagle, I'm sure you'll see other Birds of Prey.

Let's just hope Saturday is just as lovely, without the crazy wind.  We want to see some of your photos too!  Tag #TheSaltProject or #TheSaltProjectisus.  Don't forget to enter our Adventure Pack Giveaway too!  Giveaway ends this month.

do you get to the Farmington Bay area by turning and taking the same extrance for the SL nature center?
