Bald Eagles of LeClaire

Bald Eagle Viewing and Photography in LeClaire

Nature photographers and bird watchers will be delighted with the opportunities at Lock and Dam #14 on the Mississippi River in LeClaire to capture amazing photos and sightings of Bald Eagles in the Winter months and Pelicans that call LeClaire "home" during the Spring and Summer months. There are so many eagles in one place, you have to see it to believe it!

Eagles start to gather around the Lock and Dam on the South Side of LeClaire as soon as the ice starts forming in December and stay around through late February and early March.

Pelicans start gathering in the channel on the South Side of LeClaire in the late Spring and   early Summer months and can be seen soaring in the skies above LeClaire through August and September.
Lock and Dam #14 is located on the Mississippi River, just off Highway 67 and just South of Interstate 80. Click here to find Lock and Dam 14 with Google Maps
