After leaving the Nelson’s on the Rush River we drove down to Red Wing Minnesota looking for Eagles. When we arrived at Colvill Park there were already quite a few eagle watchers and photographers gathered along the shore. It was bitterly cold at -15 but fortunately there was almost no wind. As we pulled into the parking lot we could see over a hundred Eagles sitting in the trees and fishing in the open water. I’ve been to Colvill Park a number of times but have never seen anywhere near this many eagles at one place. More Bald Eagle photos from Colvill Park can be found on my website.

This eagle was sitting in a frost covered tree. He had apparently had success at fishing because his tail was covered in blood.

We could see fish along the surface of the water and so could the eagles. They seem to have over a 50 percent success rate on this cold morning.

It was really fun watching them fly above the water looking for fish.

 

As we watched this eagle flew up into a tree near the car and was telling everyone that he caught a fish.
