Bald Eagle

Bald eagles can been viewed at this location during winter months.  You are most likely to see them perched in trees along the banks of the river.

The story of the bald eagle is one of struggle and come back.  The bald eagle was nearly a thing of the past but through conservation efforts and several protection laws they are making a remarkable recovery.   Increasing from only 487 breeding pairs in 1963 to 9789 breeding pairs in 2006.
