Rappahannock River Valley National Wildlife Refuge is proud to have nesting and roosting bald eagles. Bald eagles prefer mature canopy trees that overlook the many creeks in the area and the tidal portions of the Rappahannock River. The river is a popular spot for wintering bald eagles, with the highest concentrations found on Cat Point Creek. Your chances of spotting an eagle while visiting the refuge are fairly good, so come take a look!
