Ryan, I go down to the river every day, waiting to see some coming in from the South. It hasn't happened. We now have some big open holes in the ice, but north of us, it's wide open, so I don't see they have a reason to stop here. I'm still looking though. How is your ice?

Mitch,

There are almost no eagles to speak of. I only saw three by the river and 5-6 more inland. They are very far south right now. I spoke to someone who was down by Burlington Ia this weekend and said there were 100s of birds down there. When they start passing through on their way up, I'll be sure to let you know :).

We have ice up to the Dam here. Very little open water. Very strange.

Definately let me know. Like you said, the weirdest eagle winter in a long time. We have had one pair here for weeks, and an occasional passerby. Last year it was much colder and we had dozens of them.

Yeah, but I'm thinking the difference this year was that it got cold early and stayed cold.

That could be. We have only had a couple of days above freezing down here since December.

It's the only explanation I can think of - last year it was pretty warm up till February when it suddenly got very cold. This year it got cold right after Thanksgiving and really hasn't let up much since. I'm wondering if most of the eagles moved south because of that.

Thanks, luck was definitely on my side here!
