2016 Bald Eagle Bus Tours

The Eagle Nature Foundation is proud to be able to once again offer 4-hour Bald Eagle Bus Tours to the public in 2016. In 2016 the tours will be conducted on Feb. 13 and 27. The tours will leave from the Stoney Creek Motel on Hwy. 20, the west side of Galena, sharply at 8:00 am on each day and return after 12:00.

The tour guide for each of these tours will be the naturalist, researcher, author and speaker, Terrence N. Ingram, who has been conducting tours for people to see bald eagles for over 50 years. He personally has discovered more winter bald eagle roosts than any other person. Many different times he has sited more than 1500 bald eagles in a single day. He has conducted bald eagle research studies for many different industries and government agencies.

He will lead the bus to 5 different historic wintering communities to see how many eagles may still be found in each one. Last year, for the first time in 50 years, he discovered that 4 out of 5 of these communities had no eagles at all. Because of this he is not promising how many eagles will be seen during the tours in 2016. This decrease in bald eagles seen is just an indication of how the bald eagle population in the Midwest is having problems surviving as has been documented in the over 50 years of ENF’s Annual Midwest Bald Eagle Count.

For a brochure for these two tours, please call 815-594-2306, or look at our website,, under events. Reservations for the tours may be made on the website, using Pay-Pal, but it is recommended that a person call the office first, to make sure there is still room on the bus for a particular day. Only after payment for a seat has been received is it reserved.
