New Year's Day at Squaw Creek Wildlife Refuge

New Year's Day at Squaw Creek Wildlife Refuge

To celebrate New Year's Day 2002 I drove the hour North of Kansas City to the Squaw Creek Wildlife Refuge. Mostly this was because their bird count for December 27th, 2001 included a record 476 Bald Eagles.

I deliberately left later than usual to get there well after dawn (I arrived about 9 am). Partly I wanted better light, mostly it was not a warm day:

They seemed to be down to about 100 or so Eagles, most of them well out on the ice where the last few pockets of open water (and the geese to weak to fly away) were.


However a couple of them were kind enough to pose nicely in trees near the road.

You can click on any of the thumbnails to go to a frame-by-frame gallery at a slightly larger size. In the frame-by-frame gallery, clicking the picture takes you to the next one.
