PINEVILLE, La. (AP) - Eagles are back at a lake bordering part of the Kisatchie National Forest, and forest officials are hosting a bald eagle speech and hike this weekend.

The event on Sunday will start at 2 p.m. with an hour-long presentation by biologist, conservationist and author David Hancock. It's aimed at teens and adults, and will take place at Tunk's Cypress Inn in Boyce.

A family-friendly hike to see the pair of eagles and their nest will begin at 3 p.m. at the Kincaid Recreation Area. Forest spokeswoman Amy Robertson says participants should wear sturdy shoes and bring some bottled water.
