The Migration: Bald Eagles

Bald Eagles will also migrate.  You’ll see family units gather along the Wisconsin River before heading southwest toward the Mississippi River, where some will spend Winter and others will continue further south.  I happened on this family of eagles along US 60 which runs along the edge of the Wisconsin River between Muscoda and Gotham.

Here a pair of adolescent eagles chase each other while an adult looks on from the trees.

An adolescent eagle perched near the river’s edge.

One of the adult eagles flew out of the trees to grab some breakfast.

And then had to fend off a pair of crows while it ate.

Then the adult returned to the trees.

And the young eagles continued to play.

In this group of eagles there were four adult Bald Eagles and five adolescent eagles.  The adults mostly hung out in the trees, leaving their perches occasionally to grab fish, while the younger eagles never stopped playing.
