Bald Eagles on the Mississippi
I was recently in LaCrosse, WI teaching a seminar and one of my students told me I had to go down to the "back river" near a restaurant to see something I probably would never have a chance to see again...hundreds of bald eagles fishing. He was right! A short distance from my hotel right next to The Castaways restaurant I got a chance to see at least 50 bald eagles sitting on the ice and fishing right there. My student told me this is the only time of the year you can see that many eagles on the river. They come and hang out as the ice is melting because the fishing is so good. It is an awesome sight!
