Any Eagle lovers out there? How about Patriots?

This looks like it would be interesting...
Bald eagle workshop set for Flagstaff FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- Did you know that many bald eagles make their home in the Flagstaff area during the winter? You can learn more about these remarkable birds and probably even spot some at the Arizona Game and Fish Department's Annual Bald Eagle Workshop in Flagstaff on Saturday, Feb. 26. The free workshop will be divided into two sessions; each one will include a lecture followed by a field trip to observe eagles. The morning session will begin at 9 a.m., and the afternoon session will begin at 1 p.m. The lectures will be held at Northern Arizona University in the Southwest Forest Science Complex, Building #82, located on the south end of campus off Pine Knoll Drive. Guest speakers will be Cecilia Overby of the Coconino National Forest; James Driscoll, Arizona Game and Fish Department bald eagle management coordinator; and Mylea Bayless, an Arizona Game and Fish Department research biologist. They will talk about wintering bald eagles and Arizona's resident eagle population. Information on an ongoing bald eagle research project will also be presented. "This workshop has always been a big success here in Flagstaff, and we hope this year's event will have a great turnout as well," says Arizona Game and Fish Department Public Information Officer Shelly Shepherd. "It is great to see so many people interested in wildlife in northern Arizona." Anyone interested in attending will need to register with the Game and Fish Flagstaff regional office at (928) 774-5045. People are reminded to dress appropriately and to bring binoculars, bird field guidebooks, snacks, and water. Space for the field trips will be limited to 50 people, but there will be extra space available for the lectures.
