I just came across these photos from one of our visits to La Crosse back in November. The bluffs that line both the Wisconsin and Minnesota sides of the Mississippi River are home to a growing population of bald eagles. It's always a thrill to see them soar over the wetlands and parks that surround La Crosse. This pair was taking a break high up in a tree in Pettibone Park.
Below is a close-up of the fellow on the left. I sure wouldn't want to be the prey in his line of sight!
