BALD EAGLES, Too Many To Count

December 13th   Today is a special day for Bald Eagles in Alma!  300+ counted along the 2-mile stretch of Mississippi River beside Alma's Main Street.  Their chittering was so loud you could hear it throughout town.

The mist in this photo is from the difference in temperature: 
Air 3 degrees, Water above 32 degrees

15 Bald Eagles In Trees
26 Bald Eagles In Trees

Look closely at these tree pictures, there are lots of eagles.

Not all bald eagles have white heads. 
Juveniles are mottled & more difficult to see in trees.

Photos taken from beside the NAPA Auto Parts Store on Main Street
within 5 minute period, it was 3 degrees and too cold to stay longer. 
Camera:  Olympus SP-800UZ Point & Shoot
