Bald Eagle

This was our first bald eagle when we started to look for them last year soon after we arrived in St. Louis.  Near Columbia Bottom we walked way out, half way across the river bed on sand flats because the Mississippi was so low, when we spotted this bird just taking it easy.
We felt very fortunate to be able to watch this one for over a half an hour.  Ed writes about bald eagles on his blog, St. Louis Sojourn, today.
Many villages and towns have Eagle Days during January: great fun on a chilly winter day.
