Bald Eagles

I took these photos along the Mississippi River except for the real close up shots, which were taken at a wildlife hospital. Bald Eagles winter along the river where the water remains unfrozen, which is typically near locks and dams. I really enjoyed watching them fight over a fish. You can see the sequence of the battle near the beginning of this gallery. There are a few captive eagles, which are noted.
