I live in Southern Illinois right next to the Mississippi River and see them all the time. In the winter months they sit on the river ice waiting for fish, and nest in the trees, and bluffs nearby. People come from all over to photgraph them here.
Thanks even for posting the pics, How can ya look at those and be depressed? The very Look at them brings shivers down my spine! I love nature shots, Here, we have Halks and a Lot of DER and some Bear, I wish I could see your eagles up close, and thanks again for posting those, it made my week!
