Every year, typically between January and March, Bald Eagles grace the Saylorville Dam with their majestic presence. This occurs during the transitional period between winter and spring when the lake’s ice hasn’t entirely melted, providing open spots for these magnificent birds to fish. Since residing in Iowa, I make a yearly effort to witness and appreciate these amazing creatures. Their presence is truly captivating and makes for an enjoyable viewing experience. In the fallowing gallery, you’ll find a selection of photos capturing moments from my eagle-watching adventures.
