    That would have been a site to see, How many were there?

    What camera and lens?

    I wish they were sharper.

    Hey, man... where were you shooting them at? I generally shoot at Canton.

    I thought about going over Sunday but it was just too gray, to really catch em I like sunshine in the afternoon :)

    #3 is a great shot! Consider cropping it down. They're all a bit dark, but you can try to fix it with PS if you're using one. What bothers me a little about the rest of the shots is that the eagles kept their head down. But that's not up to you ;)

    I was useing a Sony A 350 and a 300mm lens , it was very overcast
    and would have preferred bright sunshine for sharper pics,
    it was estimated that there were 600 eagles there and I cant doubt it,
    I might have to go back when the sun is out, I had a ball,
    Clarksville is a little town on the Mississippi about 30 miles south of Hannibal. it is a neat little town with several craft shops, and crafters glass makers chair makers etc. Has several nice little resturants,
    its worth the trip if you live near its about a 2 hour trip for me
