Bald Eagles

This winter was a good one for Snowy Owls and Bald Eagles in the midwest. I personally had poor luck finding any Snowys, but did get a good visit in with the Bald Eagles along the Mississippi in in LeClaire, Iowa.

The local Carpentersville pair of Eagles fly quite regularly over my house and one occasionally sits in a tree visible from the living room, but there's something magical and awesome about seeing 10, 20 or more in a single tree that makes driving the 150 extra miles worthwhile.
