FRANKFORT, Ky. -- The Kentucky State Parks are offering eagle watching tours in January and February.

The park system sponsors wildlife-watching opportunity as bald eagles gather around the major lakes of western Kentucky looking for food. The park tours allow visitors to observe and learn about the eagles.

The tours take place at three resort parks during weekends on an excursion yacht and by van. They are led by state park naturalists and Department of Fish and Wildlife biologists.

Ticket prices for the tours range from $20 to $55 a person.

The tours at Kentucky Dam Village, Lake Barkley and Kenlake will include an option to view eagles from the CQ Princess, a 96-foot yacht. Guests can view eagles from inside the CQ Princess or from outside decks.
