Enjoy a Bounty of Bald Eagles on Our New Twitter Account

We like to give you guys what you want.

And based on reactions we've seen on the District's main Facebook page, our Will County Wildlife Facebook group, as well as our other social media accounts, including Instagram, everyone wants to see bald eagles. 

So we have an easy way to see nothing but bald eagles: Our new Twitter account dedicated to nothing but America's Bird. Today's Bald Eagle is simple yet beautiful. It's just one magnificent bald eagle photo per day.

In an era where some social media content can cause some stress and anxiety, this is sure to offer a nice break, put a smile on your face and, maybe, lower the blood pressure a bit.

The basic format of the feed has worked well so far with two other accounts we launched in 2018, Today's Bird and Wildlife of the Day, which are closing in on a combined 40,000 highly engaged followers, so branching out yet again seems like a natural fit.

FOLLOW TODAY'S BALD EAGLE

We're excited to be adding Today's Bald Eagle to our social media offerings and look forward to you coming along for the ride. We're also thrilled to be working with some of our primary contributors on our Will County Wildlife Facebook group, who are providing some amazing images.

Give us a follow, because there's no better way to momentarily take a step back from the daily hustle and bustle than soaking in the beauty of a bald eagle.
