Nice sunshine today. Tomorrow is predicted to be freezing rain and snow. One of the neat things about this area is being able to see bald eagles from late Nov. through early Apr. These were actually within city limits.

I saw eagles in flight but the only close ones were while I was driving. This was taken using the S-K 1.4x.

Nice pictures taken along the Mississippi AC. I enjoyed both your duck and eagle pictures taken along the big river. Up here in northern Minnesota--Duluth to be exact--we will not start seeing the bald eagles and ducks again for another month or so when the lakes and harbors start opening up or iceing out as we sometimes say and then the northward migration will be underway. Your black and whites were very nice. I keep forgeting that theres a b&w seting on my 6490. Guess I should try it once in awhile. andy74

Thanks Andy. The eagles seem to start their northward migration from here about the first of April. If one is standing outside along the river mid-morning when the migration starts one will see small groups (1, 2, or 3) seek thermals and gain altitude in the thermals. They break out of the thermal upriver and seek the next thermal. Their migration flight seems much more economical in motion and energy expenditure than their hunting flight.

I still haven't had any good opportunities to for in flight pictures but three of the last four days I've enjoyed seeing them hunt over the river near Lock & Dam 15 on my way to work.

Excellent photos, ac.smith!

They really look good. I am glad I dropped by the Kodak Forum.
