Eagles at Colvill Park
I stopped at Colvill Park this weekend and both days counted about 30 Bald Eagles. They winter here because the Mississippi is open all winter and they can feed. The bay at Colvill is the main focus for them. Usually the bay is open up to the boat launch but due to cold weather it's frozen along the shore. The main channel is open but there are lots of ice sheets floating down stream. Not good for paddling. Click on the photos to enlarge and count the eagles.
Also of note today. I tried and did several off side rolls! Whoo Hoo! (in a pool of course)
