The Eagle Has Landed


This statue of a majestic eagle graces Riverside Park in downtown La Crosse, Wisconsin. We never saw eagles in that area while growing up in the 60's and 70's, but they started to make a come back in the late 80's. Now they can be seen soaring along the Mississippi River between the bluffs of both Wisconsin and Minnesota all times of the year.
