Golden eagles use the blufflands of the Upper Mississippi River Valley as wintering territory. Golden eagles are terrestrial hunters and are rarely seen near the water. The elusive raptors can be found in the bluffs and valleys along the Upper Mississippi River Valley in the winter months. The National Eagle Center is part of an on-going effort to better understand the habitat use and needs of these wintering golden eagles. For more information about golden eagles in the blufflands, see our Golden Eagle Project.
This winter, the National Eagle Center is offering Eagle Viewing Field Trips. You can learn more about the Golden Egale Project and golden eagles in the Upper Mississippi River Valley on a guided tour with Education Director Scott Mehus.
