Our National bird is a beautiful site to see soaring freely through the skies above. The Bald Eagle is among the largest birds and every winter they make Lake Texoma their home. There are North Texas resorts that have grand views right from your room. Tanglewood Resort and Conference Center is situated on Lake Texoma and offers some of the best views of these majestic raptors.
Our Nation’s Bird
As a magnificent symbol of the United States, many can easily recognize the striking features of the bird with ease. With a white head and brown body, the Bald Eagle averages at about 8 to 14 pounds and have been known to have a wingspan of up to 7 ½ feet. Though these birds are easily spotted, they were once scarce and faced extinction until their population began rapidly growing with the help of protective laws. They were removed from the endangered species list in 2007, and you can now find dozens making themselves at home on Lake Texoma.
A Warm Winter Home
Bald Eagles are found all throughout North America and even in Ireland, but in the winter months, a good number of them like to fly south like many of us. Within the last 10 or so years, the number of birds coming to Lake Texoma for their “snowbird getaway” has grown considerably. Before being removed from the endangered species list, only a small handful could be found, but now dozens return annually. There are several different eagle watching cruises and tours that will take you out to see the birds and watch them in action.
The Best Views Around
It is always a wondrous experience to see the Bald Eagle flying by or gliding on the wind. When you can see them right from your window during your stay, it gets even better. When you stay at Tanglewood Resort and Conference Center, many of the rooms have incredible views of Lake Texoma and all of its feathered inhabitants. Waking up in the morning to the unique sounds of the eagle out your window and opening your eyes to panoramic lake views is something you cannot find just anywhere.
