So I'll interpret your post to indicate that 400mm is quite acceptable for Eagles around the quad cities winter shooting. I asked only because I still contemplate a drive down from Chicago for some shooting, and would consider renting a lens for the weekend.

If you had your choice of lens to rent for this specific shooting, what would you recommend? Also, I didn't ask, do you also use under 400mm from the shooting spots, or is reach usually a challenge like most wildlife shooting?

I am typically at 400 mm. I have previously used a Tamron 150-600 and I wish that my Tammy had been sharper. I have used my 1.4xiii with the 100-400 but find the IQ decrease is about equal to the IQ loss from cropping a 400mm shot.
I was close enough today that my 70-200 would have been ok at times but I sure wouldn't think to leave the 100-400 home.

...

... Sunday was -11 F when I left home to go sit along the river, the sun was up and I thought that would make for awesome shooting, however, the river was blanketed in a 3 foot steam as the water was that much warmer than the air temp.
That being said, it was very fun and I got some keepers. Here are a few.

I think these two statements quoted in red are mutually exclusive... :-)
