The Mississippi River hosts one of the largest concentrations of bald eagles!

Did you know the Mississippi River hosts one of North America’s largest concentrations of bald eagles?  They are drawn to areas of open water in search of fish, their preferred food. The Chain of Rocks rapids to the south of the Bridge create open waters which are ideal fishing waters for eagles. Eagle Days is a unique opportunity to watch them fish, ride ice floes, soar overhead and roost in nearby trees while learning more about eagles and local wildlife in the comfort of a warming tent!
