Discover Western Montana’s Bald Eagle's

Spot the endangered and majestic Bald Eagle best in autumn along Montana’s waterways and lakes. With a white head and tail and a dark brown body and wings, they’re unmistakable. Ranging in length from 27 – 37 inches with a wingspan of 5.5 – 8 feet, the Bald Eagle is second in size of American birds of prey. Living in Montana year-round, Bald Eagles regularly inhabit wetlands, open water areas, major water bodies and spring spawning streams, with nesting-site selection dependent upon local food availability. Bald Eagles primarily feed on fish, with a secondary diet of waterfowl.
