Eagle Days at Lake Wabaunsee!

Through the trees this morning, we saw an immature bald eagle hunting on the ice at beautiful Lake Wabaunsee! It was cloudy today, with ice on the lake with plenty of open water as well!

Roosting in a group of trees, we saw three mature bald eagles; on the ground, another immature eagle and on the ice, two more immature eagles. A pair of eagles raised their young at Lake Wabaunsee last summer...

Early this afternoon, the two adults were feeding on their catch, sitting on the ice at the lake; still hunting in the open water on this chilly afternoon.

Note! If you click on the pictures, you can see the full size photographs are much more clear than what you see here!
