January 2010 Bald Eagle Trip

The bald eagle trip is now being planned for January 2010.  We will stay at the Super 8 motel in LeClaire, Iowa.  LeClaire is the location of Corps of Engineers lock number 14 on the Mississippi River. Migratory bald eagles gather near the locks during the coldest part of the winter, because undercurrent flows in the river break up the ice covering and make for good fishing for the eagles Here is a link to some of my photos from my 2009 trip

Please post a comment here if you are interested in the January 8-10, 2010, bald eagle photography trip.  In your post, please indicate the number of rooms you will need.  I will assume one room per poster if you do not indicate otherwise.  Last year, I paid about $60 per night. Once I have an approximate number of rooms needed, I will try to get a special rate for the club.

I will drive up to LeClaire on the morning of Friday, January 8th.  I like to set up and shoot for about an hour at a time, then return to the room to look at my photos on the computer and warm up for an hour or two, then repeat the process until dark.  I'm looking forward to the trip and I hope many of you can join us!
