Squaw Creek Eagle Days, Dec. 1 and 2

One of the positive aspects of colder weather is waterfowl migrating south to warmer waters — bringing bald eagles with them! Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge in Mound City, Missouri typically hosts hundreds of eagles each winter, and their December Eagle Days are a wonderful opportunity to get to know these majestic birds.

Visitor Center and Eagle Displays are open 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. and include videos and brochures. Be sure to pick up a free eagle print for your group.

Live Eagle Programs are given each hour on the hour.Saturday 9 a.m. – 3 p.m, Sunday 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Eagle Viewing Station and Refuge Auto Tour are open from sunrise to sunset. Spotting scopes are set up as you enter the refuge and staff will be ready to help you see an eagle in the wild.

You can follow current bird counts on the Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge Facebook page.
