1-14-2012 Down by the River

Winter has finally arrived!
 So DH & I went down to the Mississippi
to check if the eagles have arrived yet.
 Still lots of open water...

 and the geese still outnumber the eagles...

Hopefully the cold weather will push more eagles down this direction...
The photographers are ready and waiting!


  1. So, where are you--Iowa? I lived in Minneapolis for two years and envied Iowans if only because they lived a few miles further south. Yet, Minneapolis was called "The Banana Belt" by the people in Northern Minnesota. I wonder what the Canadians called them.

  2. Yep, Snowbrush, I'm in Iowa, and the eagles are just now starting to migrate in as the cold weather up north pushes them down here. We have an "Eagle Days Festival" each January to celebrate their arrival. :*)
