Winter Eagle Watching '06 -'07

Nov. 24, 2006 - An early winter eagle watching trip to the mississippi... I heard the eagles were catching a lot of coots, and a picture of the actual catch, was my goal. When I told people that, they all said "You should've been here LAST week... All the coots are gone." I saw a few eagles come in with coots, but I don't know where they were catching them. The first picture shows an immature eagle eating a coot in a tree (note the foot hanging down). The second is a fly by of an adult (empty handed). The third is a shot of an adult perched on a branch, among the thousands of tundra swans stopped over during their migration.

Jan. 30, 2007 - At the hydro electric dam in Sauk City, on the Wisconsin River. Not as "tack-sharp" as I would like them to be, but I think I know what to correct.
