Been a while

Hello everyone. Well it's been a while from our last post. Has been a busy summer, and fall. So wanted to post this shot I got of a baby Cedar Waxwing that was in our yard.

Eagles at Mississippi River Lock and Dam 14

  • January 19, 2015

Hello everyone! We had a chance to drive out the Mississippi River at Lock and Dam 14 to take some pictures of Eagles along the dam. The Dam in located just South of Le Claire, IA. It's a very popular photographer spot and will get crowed with arm to arm photographers: There is normally one person who would be there throwing fish into the water. This attracts the eagles to come down and grab the fish out of the water: It's a fun place to go to watch eagles and other birds in the area. It's not just for photographers and birders, but also for the kids-they enjoy watching them also....
