We drove over to Keokuk to the 30th Annual Bald Eagle Appreciation Days, Jan. 18-19, 2014.
As we looked at the Bald Eagles this ranger said he had seen about 130 Bald Eagles in one hour but with that many he might have counted the Eagles more than once.
Here is a picture with about 11 or 13 Bald Eagles in the trees.
Beautiful birds!!! We were able to zoom up to show this Bald Eagle.
This is the Mississippi River on the Keokuk side. This is where a lot of Bald Eagles come for the winter to eat fish.
After we watched them with snow coming down on us and I was so cold even bundled with my snow cloths and boots we left and went to the River City Mall which had a movie theater and they had a movie about Bald Eagles and then talked about the birds. As they talked about the birds they let two of them fly over our heads. That was really cool. Here are a few pictures I tried to get with my phone but they are not very good. The first bird they showed us was a vulture.
Another bird was an Owl!! He also flew over us.
Here is the bird that took the money and put in the save. This is a good way for people to donate money and then they can take care of the birds.
Here is a beautiful picture that Sister Money was able to catch, Awesome!!
