I am very fortunate to live in an area where eagles are frequent visitors in the winter. Along the Mississippi River at Lock and Dam 14 near LeClaire, Iowa eagles can be viewed during the winter months.
Last weekend my friend Bill and I spent the afternoon hoping to capture some eagle action. Things were pretty slow where the eagles were concerned. However, we enjoyed watching these beautiful goldeneyes swimming in the area.
We enjoyed watching several pelicans fishing in the quiet waters. It was a beautiful winter day with bright sunshine and temperatures in the upper 30s. It was a perfect day for a road trip with a good friend!
