A large number of Eagles winter here in MO. I love watching them, but it's so darn cold.

Lock and Dams along the Mississippi River. Fish are stunned passing through the dams and make for easy fishing for the Bald Eagles. The photo I posted was taken in Clarksville, MO at Lock and Dam 24. Winfield, MO. Grafton, IL. and Alton, IL. are great places to view Eagles in winter too.

BaldEagles aren't rare - I've taken a few trips from pa to detroit across the ohio turnpike - I see multiple eagles every trip. Went to FL last january and took an airboat tour of the everglades around christmas FL and lots of bald eagles there too.

I've probably seen 20 in the past 2 years. None at my house - I see a lot of red tail hawks (almost daily)

The coolest critter I've seen was a few years ago, I had a tree trunk that was rotting and every morning at 10 am on the dot a large wood pecker would arrive and have breakfast. I tried like heck to get pics but he was a touchy critter, anything and everything would get him on the move.

I hear woodpeckers often but rarely see them, same for owls.

If you do come to MO you might also consider a visit to the Wild Bird Sanctuary in Valley Park, MO. They have quite a collection of exotic birds and quite a few Bald Eagles. Almost all of the Bald Eagles they have were injured and unable to be returned to the wild. Here’s a photo of one of their Eagles flying at Busch Stadium during pre-game festivities at a baseball game. They are truly majestic birds.

Arkansas

We Took these in Arkansas last year around Fairfield Bay area the land scape was from a state park that is an Island you had to hike to the top to get the shot. We happened to be there when the hummingbirds were migrating. What a site to see so many at once.

That would be awesome. I'm putting up a hummingbird feeder this summer for the first time. Can't wait for my birdies!

Wow! Baseball and Eagles in the Same place! I love my Tigers, but we don't get anything extra, except one year....extremely rare and odd...a swarm of flying Ants. I swear.
Corrected: I first remembered it as Locusts, but it wasn't.

Eagle was taken at Reelfoot lake in TN, right across the border from MO. Reelfoot I believe is the only non-manmade lake in TN and was made in 1811 or 1812 due to the earthquake in the St. Louis Area. During the winter, bald eagles come there to fish; like Oakman stated.

This photo was taken back in 2011, at a small outpost outside of the entrance to Canyonlands NP; Needles District...
