Newswise — Bald eagles are one of the most recognizable birds in the United States, and they are seen in every state except Hawaii. Thanks to years of successful conservation efforts, the bald eagle has recovered and was pulled of the endangered species list in 2007. National Wildlife Federation presents a list—divided alphabetically by every state!—of where you and your family can spot the wintering birds of prey.

Eagles are found everywhere in the United States except Hawaii. Some states have several sites where eagles congregate in large numbers. Others have only one or two locations where a few of the birds are spotted each year. Check out our list of one popular eagle hangout for every state. Bundle up and take the family outdoors to spot the majestic birds of prey, or join in on an eagle watching weekend this winter.
