Sedona Area Eagle Sightseeing Tours
December through May, the annual Eagle Watch
season is on at Verde Canyon Railroad. Whether you
choose coach or first-class seating, adjacent open-air
viewing cars offer the best spotting opportunities.
Soaring over their winter habitat along Arizona’s
perennial streams and rivers, Bald Eagles inspire all
with their majestic appearance and graceful acrobatics.
Nesting season along the Verde Canyon Railroad
begins in November with the return of migratory raptors expanding the resident population during the
winter months. This prime-time eagle season features an abundance of high-flying activity as the birds
jockey for position, mates and nesting locations. Most of the access points to the Canyon are closed to
the public during the breeding season, the exception being Verde Canyon Railroad. The train has
rumbled through this ravine for over 100 years and poses no distraction to these avian inhabitants,
their many generations accustomed to the iron horse’s daily appearance along the river.
Catch a glimpse of our national symbol in its natural landscape, flying free in the big western sky along
red sandstone cliff faces and diving into the cool green river to snatch a fat fish to feed its eaglets. Eagle
watchers can snag some treats of their own during the rail trip, enjoying freshly-made hors d’oeuvres
washed down with local favorites. Reserve your spot here.
