When you come and stay with us, you are only a few short minutes away from downtown Dubuque, the location of many of these fantastic events. Check out the travel guide for a list by month of the many activities in the area, and check our blog weekly for an updated list of the local activities happening that weekend.

At this event, there were a variety of birds of prey on display. Some were even allowed to fly around inside the auditorium while the handlers told about the bird, their habitat and their habits. A really interesting experience, especially if you’ve never seen an eagle up close.

My favorite was the bald eagle. Seeing one up close allows you to better understand why it was selected as our national bird (beats the turkey as Ben Franklin wanted us to have). Unfortunately, the one featured in the picture below is not able to be released back into the wild, but was more than fascinating to just observe.

Birds of Prey Activity in Dubuque a few weeks back featured a beautiful bald eagle up close.

Barn Owl, just a beautiful as the bald eagle in its own way

I see everything…
