Most of us, if not all of us have bird seed feeders, hummingbird nectar feeders and possibly even squirrel seed/corn feeders.  But, where does that leave many of our insect and "meat eaters?"  With…Continue

We made it to lock and damn 13 Then had to start for home since the snow was coming and our car wouldn't of handled it. I had an Eagle flying right over head about 30 ft, boy was that a beautiful sight.
I'll post pictures soon.

Robin they say the best place for action shots is North of the Quad cities off 8o. I can't remember how to get to get to the lock or remember the nuber but it isn't very far from Alcoa. I think you were there last year. The weather has gotten colder and the River will start to freeze today and tomorrow which should get them closer to the Dams, for easier viewing. This year I have only been to Keokuk, Ia. Dam and the one in Gladstone. I'm going back down to Arkansas to see my Dad on Monday and won't be back till Wed.. Robin you should have a good time. Post some pictures when you get back.Eagle and Crow sharing BreakfastWhite Tailed Deer Doe taken in Northern Arkansas last week

Thanks for showing your pet Fran and the Crab on the toilet seat must have been a shocker. I have been out and about enjoying the wildlife in my area. I go almost everyday to the Mississippi River to look at Eagles this time of the year. Yesterday we went to Keokuk, Ia. for Bald Eagle Days. The lighting was wrong for taking pictures and the Eagles were in IL. across the River so we decided to go to Warsaw, IL. Here are some of the wildlife we saw there.Young American Bald Eagle probably in it's 4th year.
