Winter-feeding Bald Eagles

The great American Bald Eagle can be seen congregating in large numbers off the shores of Alma, Wisconsin during the Winter months. The water of the Mississippi remains free of ice just below Lock & Dam #4. Eagles gather to fish in the open waters. It's a thrilling sight to behold as they scoop up giant fish, and then fight to keep their catch from one another once back on the frozen area of the River. Alma affords several great viewing locations, both inside and out, to watch these majestic birds of prey.
