Bald Eagle Photos and Information


Winter and early spring are dominated by some twenty-five American Bald Eagles that migrate to the Texas Colorado River Canyon for the winter.

Seeing these national symbols soaring through a crisp cloudless blue sky is a sight no one will ever forget.  

Vanishing Texas River Cruise offers Eagle Cruises November - March.

Cruise boats depart from Canyon of the Eagles  Lodge and Nature Park  on Lake Buchanan.
