As an effort to get the boys some fresh air last week, I thought we'd go out and do some eagle watching.  We took a drive to the Lock and Dam north of Burlington (I don't know it's number), and immediately saw our first eagle as we drove up the road to the dam.  It was hanging around a deer corpse on the side of the road, and flew up and over our car as we drove down the road.  It was a great "first sighting" and got the boys very excited about seeing more eagles.
We were the only ones there that day, so the boys were able to run free and stretch their legs a bit.  There weren't huge amounts of eagles, but it was enough for us!  We had so much fun that we went back over the weekend with daddy, and even made a trip to Keokuk to see if we could have some better luck. 
I've been practicing with a new camera, so this was a great opportunity to try out my zoom lens.  Enjoy!
