Looking for eagles

On a recent trip to the Reelfoot area, we were able to spot several eagles.  The first one we saw was sitting on a log out in the lake.   It was keeping an eye on a flock of ducks that was swimming nearby.

 

Then we drove to the Mississippi levee and saw an eagle sitting in a tree near a large nest.

 

Further on down the levee, we spotted two eagles sitting in the same tree.  One was near the top of the tree and the other was more concealed, sitting on a lower branch.

No matter how many times you see them, it is always a joy to observe these beautiful birds.

    • The Mississippi River seems to be one of their favorite places. One of my daughters lives near the Mississippi River in MN and they fly over her house quite often. Also have a daughter in New Orleans and we’ve spotted them there also.
