Each year, the American Bald Eagle flocks to Starved Rock to feed on fish at the Lock and Dam. This is a spectacular event, draws thousands of visitors to watch this majestic raptor! The Illinois Waterway Visitor Center counted 56 bald eagles on Eagle Watch Weekend in 2014. The eagles winter at Starved Rock from mid December through the end of February, and sometimes early March (Weather depending). Eagles can be seen perched in trees along the Illinois River along Dee Bennett Road and near the boat launch at Starved Rock State Park.
