PUXICO, Mo. (KFVS) - Bald eagles are center stage for the Missouri Department of Conservation’s February plans.

They will be holding MDC Eagle Days in Puxico.

Due to icy conditions, the MDC and Mingo National Wildlife Refuge changed the schedule for Eagle Days on February 4 in Puxico.

“Roads continue to be treacherous on portions of Duck Creek Conservation Area and Mingo NWR,” said MDC Conservation Educator Sally Hancock in a release. “Only wild eagle viewing opportunities are cancelled at Mingo’s Ditch 2, Company Farm, and Duck Creek’s Pool 1.”

The live eagle program from the World Bird Sanctuary at the Puxico Activity Center/FEMA building, activities associated with the Mingo Visitor Center and eagle viewing opportunities at Wappapello Lake Visitor Center from 8 – 10 a.m. will happen as scheduled.

Live eagle shows will take place at 8:30 a.m., 10 a.m., 11:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Feb. 4.

Each show is limited to 400 people and attendance is free.
