Artist's Description

On February 21, 2014 Julie and I took a ride along the “River Road” beside Alton Lake north of Alton Illinois. Alton Lake is actually the Mississippi River where it back up behind the Chain of Rocks Lock and Damn. The ice on the river was broken up by the river tug boat traffic. We saw lots of American Bald Eagles perching on the chunks of broken ice like these two. The eagles winter here at Alton Lake and raise their young before heading north for the spring and summer. You almost always see them in pairs since they mate for life and they hunt together and raise their young together.
