Eagle Watching

 

A stay with Green Tree Inn offers the perfect opportunity for viewing Bald Eagles and other bird watching. Eagles love to build their large nests along the Mississippi. One of the best places to spot our nation’s bird is along the Great River Byway. The Eagles are easier to spot if you are driving toward Alton, Illinois from Grafton, Illinois. The outside lane of the Great River Road gives a better view of the bluffs.

The Brussels Ferry and Hardin Riverfront in Calhoun County, Illinois is a great place to spot eagles, as is the Audubon Center at Riverlands and Two Rivers National Wildlife Refuge.
