welp its almost winter in the quad cities area fellow photogs, thought I'd post some photo's I neglected to post from last January's trip to the Dam.

Looking forward to another trip to the dam this winter.
Thought I bring the thread back to life and get you all excited for another Eagle Season

Post em up from this winter and keep us up to date on some Eagle counts you see when there. Happy shooting. I'm planning on 3rd weekend in January again, which these photo's were taken

Cheers
Steve

I just started thinking about this last week. It is always a highlight of my year to make a couple trips to the dam

Nekro, we went last year...got skunked on Eagles...it was I think 2 weeks too early-the river had not frozen over, for the mass of birds. I think there are always some there.
So sadly just a couple of Eagles shots from there.
Didn't come home empty handed though, mentioned to a fellow hanging out around the dam our interest in owls, next morning he took us owling-

Nekro, we're not going to L/D14 this year. Headed to Florida in a couple of days for paddle camping, then over Christmas Ohio looking for Harriers and SEOs. March back to Florida for Osprey,
June/July Utah for Milky Way, then September Hungary/Romania for whatever is there :)
So that's my schedule!

I'm pretty fortunate to have a reasonably healthy bald eagle population here in Ottumwa and the shooting is good when the river ices up. I made a trip to L&D 14 last year but it was a dreary dreadful dismal gray day with lots of open water. I got some great shots of eagles in the trees around the parking lot and a few nice shots of birds fishing.
That being said, I could see that it would be an amazing place to shoot when there is lots of ice and good light.
I plan to get there again a couple of times this year.
