American Eagle - Autumn Bounty on the Mississippi

It’s October in the Upper Mississippi River Valley, and the weather is mild. Waterbirds, about to leave for warmer regions to the South, are a temporary bounty for the bald eagles here. Migrant bald eagles from Canada join the area’s year-round residents to take advantage of the plentiful food. As they pluck coots and mallards from the water, the eagles show off their amazing aerial antics.
