A gray cold day on the river-but any day on the river is a good day. Found this Bald Eagle sitting with the Tundra Swans in the Mississippi backwaters south of Brownsville, Mn. The swans are resting and feeding on Arrow root on their way to the Chesapeake Bay out east. We saw about 75 eagles in a ten mile stretch of the big river. The eagles feed on the weak and wounded ducks, swans, and coots. The healthy Swans and ducks pay little attention to the eagles.
