Hundreds of eagles spotted near Wayne

Friday, January 2, 2009

Close to 200 eagles were spotted in the Wayne area on Dec. 19 by the Schreiner family. Bridget Schreiner took these photos of the magnificent birds, which were taken off the federal endangered species list last year. "What a sight it was to see," said Bridget. "It was such a blessing to have them grace our presence with their beauty if for only a brief moment. I have not seen that many of them together since but am hoping for them to come back soon." Other prime viewing areas for eagles in Barry County include Roaring River State Park, Wheaton and Washburn Prairie. Photos by Bridget Schreiner

  • What kind of eagles are they? Bald? Golden? I'm new to the area...

    What a sight that must have been to see... Oh my gosh. I am excited to see one and the Schreiner family saw a tree full.

    Beautiful ! Thanks for showing the photo. Now I can see the tree full too. Thanks again.

  • It appears to be Bald Eagles in the photograph. Bald Eagles are more prominent in Missouri than Golden Eagles.

    Here is a site to the Missouri Department of Conservation for more facts.

    Happy Eagle spotting.
