Here is proof that the American Bald Eagle has come back to Missouri to stay. This image was taken on March 27, 2014 which is much to late in the year for eagles that are going to migrate back north. This pair has built this huge nest near the top of this large Sycamore tree beside a large creek just a few miles from Ozora Missouri. This small community is about 45 minutes south of St. Louis Missouri. The people who own the land where the nest has been built have placed no trespassing signs on the gravel road that goes into the field where the nest is to protect the eagles so this is as close as I could get.
My thanks to my friend Kenny who called and told me about the nest.
