Watching a bald eagle soar overhead is a breathtaking sight. The Little Sioux River Valley is a wonderful spot locally to view birds as they fly, feed and roost.

Bald eagles have recently built a nest near the Prairie Heritage Center which can be viewed from Hwy 10. The annual Bald Eagle Watch is a great opportunity to learn more about eagles, and to observe them in our area. This year, the festival will be held on Saturday, March 5 at Stop by throughout the day from 9:30 a.m. until 4 p.m.The O'Brien County Conservation Board naturalist and other volunteers will be on hand to help you spot and identify eagles. Take part in hands-on activities and view informational displays. In addition to eagle watching, a special birding presentation will be given by Duane Jundt, a history professor at Northwestern College. Jundt will present "Birder in Chief - Theodore Roosevelt and America's Birds" beginning at 2 p.m.
