Thanks Eric and Darren! This was taken by Wabasha, MN. In 3 weeks they expect about 200 eagles in that area - it's a natural migratory route every fall and spring. This year there was about 20 birds that stayed the winter. Bobbi #404941

Absolutely wonderful shot Bobbi! Well done! Do you live nearby to these beautiful birds' migratory path? How fortunate you are to be able to get shots like this one... We hope to see more of them on BP in the near future! #407484

Thank you Carolyn! Yes, we live about 70 or 80 miles from where I took this photo. Every year there are more and more birds going through and this year there were about 20 that stayed year around. Bobbi #407773

Thanks for the feedback and info. about those beautiful birds Bobbi! Isn't it great that they are on the increase when migrating through that area? It must have been a treat to have 20 of them staying right through the winter too! Happy snapping... #408637
