Birders craving the sight of this beautiful bird should move right down to the Mississippi river . Eagle watching today is a celebration of one of the brightest environmental resurgence of United States national bird. At a time when their northern fishing areas are freezing over, the Bald Eagles migrate to this region for food and roosting sites. These faithful birds mate for life and choose another partner only if a mate dies. Their nests are huge almost stretching as much as eight feet across and weigh up to a ton (907kg).
Viewing sights: Inland areas as well as rivers
Bald Eagle Appreciation Days are held across Iowa during January and February,
