The Town of Waterloo sits a few miles west of the Natchez Trace Parkway in Northwestern Alabama. The area is renowned for its concentration of Bald Eagles that congregate here in the winter months. Sightings of half a dozen eagles are quite common, and at times over twenty have been seen on a single gravel bank! The Eagles also nest in the area, so while they can be seen year round, their concentrations are most impressive in the winter.
