The confluence of the Kaw and Missouri Rivers have been long recognized by bird watchers as an active winter fishing site for our American Bald Eagles.  These great birds will "roost" here during the freezing temperatures because the churning waters provide open in the ice and oxygen which brings fish to the surface.  These perfect conditions allow adult eagles to teach their young to catch an easy meal.  Public viewing daily January 3-March 7 from 7am-6pm recommended.  Special events on Jan. 30-31 include site tours and displays.
