Where Eagles Soar! Excellent Eagle Viewing at DeSoto National Wildlife Refuge
MISSOURI VALLEY, IA/BLAIR, NE – At last count more than fifty bald eagles were spotted at DeSoto National Wildlife Refuge. Eagles are most easily spotted along the tour road near the Missouri River. Look for them perched and searching the water below for food. For more information on where to spot the eagles or to get a refuge map, please stop at the visitor center. Be reminded that there are entrance requirements for DeSoto. A daily refuge vehicle pass can be used and is available for $3.00 via drop boxes or at the refuge’s visitor center.
