Due to the consistent colder weather this last week, the Mississippi River is icing over. Of course the water remains open at the locks and dams, but there are the ice flows, which small dead shad get caught up in. The eagles were hovering over the ice and landing on the ice to eat these snack size fish. It is amazing how they can spot the fish to begin with! Most times they would gulp the fish down right there on the ice and other times they would pick it up and eat it in the air.
