Point Douglas lies at the confluence of the St. Croix and
Mississippi Rivers on the Minnesota side across from Prescott, Wisconsin. This portion of the river remains open throughout the winter and is a great spot to observe a number of waterfowl species. Point Douglas has been known for a number of accidental species including long-tailed and Harlequin ducks.
The railroad bridge crossing the St. Croix River is the home to a nesting pair of Peregrine falcons. These amazing birds can be seen commanding the skies above Prescott throughout most of the year.
