Ice Surfing on the Mississippi River by 

My husband and I went to Lock & Dam No. 12 in Bellevue, Iowa to watch the eagles today!! We counted 30 American Bald Eagles on the Mississippi River!! It was AWESOME!! This American Bald Eagle looked as though he had an “ice board” on the river, surfing for fish!! USA

    Lucky you, you sure got fantastic images of this beautiful bird.

  • Thank you, Rosalie!!! Today I was really wishing I had a camera with “all the bells and whistles” instead of just my “point and shoot!!” :-)

    Hi, Lorilee. What a great sight the eagles are in the Midwest. I just saw a lone one in Orland Park, IL last week, a good sighting of a bird not common in southwest suburban Chicagoland. We get bald eagles in the coldest part of winter at Illinois’ Starved Rock State Park but it’s always great seeing them a bit further afield. Glad you had such a wonderful outing with these grand birds. It must have been a wonderful experience. I am heartened to see them making a comeback in the lower Midwest. Best to you and happy bird watching/photography sessions! G

  • Thank you, Gina!!! I’ve never seen so many American Bald Eagles at once . . . it was an AMAZING sight to see!!! :-)
