Jan 13, 2013: Bald Eagles

These two adult Bald Eagles were on the south lake ice, near the trail along the east side.  The larger one was feeding on the remains of a Canada Goose carcass.  Eventually it took off with the carcass in its talons.  1/13/13 (Wolf Oesterreich)
Winter is a good time to see lots of Bald Eagles, especially along open rivers (below the dams at Saylorville & Red Rock). You might want to consider attending a "Bald Eagle Day" event. I believe that the one at Lake Red Rock (+ activities in Pella) is on 26 January, while the one at Saylorville Lake is on 26 February (Visitor Center).
