(MissouriNet) - The nation's bird is on display this weekend in its natural habitat at Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge in northwest Missouri.
People are likely to see dozens of bald eagles in the air and in the trees.
Conservation Department spokesman Bill Graham says people also have the chance to see one up close, and this weekend's Eagle Days is the first of four such events this month and in January.
Graham says about 2,000 eagles winter in Missouri.
The January events will be at the Springfield Conservation Nature Center, Smithville Lake near Kansas City and at Clarksville along the Mississippi.
The final event is in February at Puxico in southeast Missouri.
Graham also says Table Rock Lake is a great place to see bald eagles in the winter, because the birds love large, open bodies of water that are not frozen over.
