Eagle Days
  Missouri is one of the leading bald eagle states.  Thousands of Eagles
migrate south each fall to hunt around the open waters of our rivers and lakes.
 More than 2,000 bald eagles are reported in Missouri regularly during winter,
making our state one of the leaders in the lower 48 states.
  The bald eagle was formally adopted as our national emblem in 1782.  In the
200 years since, its numbers suffered a great decline.  However the bald eagle
has recovered and it is reported that more than 7,000 nesting pairs are found
in the lower 48 states.
  In 1995, the federal government downgraded the bald eagle's status from
endangered to threatened throughout its range.
  A few bald eagles usually are seen in Missouri by mid-fall but most arrive in
December.  In some cases, a bird will return to the same location each winter
to find food in unfrozen lakes and rivers.  In addition to feeding sites, a
wintering area
usually contains isolated night roosts.
