Eagles on the river

We haven’t had as many Bald Eagles as usual in the St. Louis area this winter for some reason. But the last week has been very cold, the Mississippi River has been frozen so I decided to try my luck between Alton & Grafton. The eagles were cooperating and I was able to get a few decent shots so the year hasn’t been a total bust.

Eagle Call!

Made my first trip up to Clarksville and Louisiana Missouri today with some friends in search of Bald Eagles. While it wasn’t the best eagle day ever I did manage to get a few shots. Here is one of the best ones.

Eagle Call!

It’s that time of year when the Bald Eagles congregate along the Mississippi River between Alton and Grafton. This one was just sitting in the tree along the highway. Pulled over and got some shots. We drove up farther north and about an hour later came back by and it was still there. Lots of cars pulled over taking a look.
