Red Wings Bald Eagles make their Annual Appearance


Each year hundreds of bald eagles overwinter in the Red Wing area near the Mississippi River, where the current of the inflowing Chippewa River maintains open water throughout the winter. The eagles begin to congregate in early November, with the best viewing opportunities in December through March. Mornings and evenings unmated adult and juvenile eagles can be seen soaring and diving for fish. During the day, they typically perch on tall trees at the river’s edge.
