A tree full of bald eagles.
Trumpeter Swans!? Well, I'm pretty sure these big white birds are trumpeter swans. I saw them floating in the Des Moines River last Saturday and they peaked my interest. I've only seen swans in ponds, never in a river. I did some research and read that the Midwest is working on restoration projects to reintroduce these FORTY POUND birds back into the ecosystem. Looks like it may be working.


  1. I love birds. That first picture is pretty awesome.

  2. i wish the photo where you could see 30 of them turned out. but it was blurry and not blog worthy. oh, well...right?
