Soaring and fishing

A friend and I recently made the trip west to the Mississippi to photograph the bald eagles.  It was a beautiful day for people, but a slow day for eagles. We learned that with no snow cover, many eagles will stay inland and hunt in the fields instead of making the flight to the open water of the river. It was still a joy to see these once endangered beauties soar and fish right in front of us!  


We also got to see a juvenile fishing very close to our location:




I am planning on another trip this winter so hopefully you will see some more from this great location!
