Details

Birding all year long

Our region is laced with waterways filled with nesting habitats for all sorts of birds. In particular, the American Bald Eagle and the White American Pelican, with blue herons, woodpeckers, chickadees, and more, keep any birder engaged.

The Rock Falls Birding Trail starts at the Upper Dam, follows along Second Street, and loops around Lawrence Park. In Rock Falls, along the Rock River, we are fortunate that bald eagles have chosen to congregate here in the trees along our riverfront to hunt for fish during the winter months. Eagles can be seen in trees next to the open water beneath the dams. They also populate the trees that surround the point of Lawrence Park Island and downstream past the high school.
