Nice day this morning at the Rock river in Illinois. Not too cold and plenty of sun. Here are some of the birds I caught.

When I see these Eagle shots you guys put out I get green with envy. Nothing like that anywhere near me here in the UK. How far did you have to travel to get these? Great shots BTW.

Thanks, this is about an hour west of where I live. I live near a river but the dams near me usually only host 1-3 eagles. Travel further west and the population spikes. I think a majority of them are on the Mississippi river which is about another hour further west than the Rock river.

These are so awesome Vinnie. I can't believe how many different birds you captured and all with fish!! That raven or crow with fish is crazy!!. I think your very first eagle photo on the OP is the winner here but I enjoyed them all.

For that first eagle shot, I would crop off some of the bottom to bring the eagle down in the frame and put more focus on the anticipated action of the upcoming catch.

EDIT: Here is just a suggestion for the crop...let me know and I will take it down at any time.

Thanks Geoff! One reason why I kept the bottom of that pic was the reflection in the water but I don't know if that really brings anything extra to it.
