A Winter’s Expedition to See Eagles

Eagles on the Mississippi River are plentiful in winter, if the temperatures are right. Lock 14 has a viewing platform that gets filled with photographers trying to capture eagles, especially when they swoop down to grab a fish. It was about 15 degrees, and we were out about four hours, so being bundled up somewhat hampered movement. Or you just got cold hands.

  1. A great collection of eagle photos Becky! I think you definitely captured some decisive moments that day. I love some of your photos that show the elegance in the tips of the flight feathers — they spread apart like fingers.
