We drove 3+ hours to see the eagles. I know there are many in different areas, but they are few and far between in our area. There's supposed to be a pair at 2 of our local lakes, but unless you're out looking for them, you probably won't see them.
This lake is up near the KY/MO line, over by the Mississippi River, so they've been much colder and with all the wind, had areas of ice on the lake.
This is a fishing/hunting lake...no swimming.
Those little dark spots in the ice...duck decoys.
From a distance, I couldn't figure out why they were sitting on the ice. (I thought I saw one look at me as I was walking up!) Ha!
This is why it's not a swimming lake. Cyprus trees everywhere. The danger of being caught in underwater trees/roots, too great.
