Notes

It takes lots of patience to capture this magnificent birds in action, as they will sit for more than an hour before suddenly become airborne to swoop to the river and grab a fish in their talons

Description

The confluence of the Mississippi, Missouri, and Illinois Rivers generates sufficient turbulence that the waters do not freeze even in the dead of winter. The open water is a magnet for bald eagles who migrate here from the northern U.S. and Canada to fish when their summer fishing beds become sheets of ice. This spot is known locally only and provides wonderful photographic opportunities to capture our nation's symbols in majestic and dramatic activity.
