A bald eagle approaches its nest along Illinois Rt. 26 south of Lacon on Monday morning. The Marshall State Fish and Wildlife Area staff members have constructed a viewing blind on the east side of the road, where the nest can be observed. Eagle watchers are being asked to use a trail from a parking area and to stay on the east side of the road to safely view the eagles and eaglets. The Pantagraph/STEVE SMEDLEY
One of two eaglets spotted Monday morning is fed by an adult bald eagle, south of Lacon. The eagle nest can be viewed safely by using a trail constructed by the Marshall County State Fish and Wildlife Area, south of Lacon and along Illinois Rt. 26. Officials ask that people do not cross the road, and use the viewing blind that has been built. The Pantagraph/STEVE SMEDLEY The Pantagraph/STEVE SMEDLEY
