Thanks to some prolonged cold weather in central Illinois, eagles have found a home in DeWitt County.
According to Department of Natural Resources CPO, John Williamson, there are quite a few eagles near Clinton Lake recently. He explains when you get near them, you know it.
The eastern edge of DeWitt County is a prime area for seeing an eagle as the weather remains cool for a short while longer. According to Williamson, they like to away from people as much as possible but notes near Route 48 and DeWitt Road they are very prevalent.
Even though a warm up is expected, Williamson believes the eagles should stick around for a while. He says the best times to see them are in the early morning hours or in the evenings.
