Introduction

Oklahoma is an important wintering area for bald eagles, consistently ranking among the top 10 states for numbers of birds. Each winter thousands of eagles migrate south from their nesting range and take up residence wherever they encounter open water and plentiful food. Because of an abundance of lakes and rivers and milder winter temperatures, Oklahoma is especially attractive to these magnificent birds. During severe winters in the north, 800 to 1,500 eagles may gather here.
