These images were made along the Mississippi River located at L&D #14, LeClaire, Iowa. The winter time is the right time to photograph them simply because the eagles migrate from other parts of the Midwest to open areas of water near the lock and dams. This open water allows them to feed when much of the river(or other nearby bodies of water) may be frozen.
