Second Eagle Trip in the Planning Stage

By Larry Rogers

Club members who particpated in the eagle trip this month (Ken, Larry, Eric) are already planning a return trip.  Our undestanding of the migration habits of the birds is that mid-February is the beginning of attrition in total numbers of birds.  Based on that understanding, we are thinking that the weekends of January 29, 30 and 31, or February 5, 6 and 7 are best.  February 7 is Super Bowl Sunday, just in case that is a factor in your decision to particpate.

Please contact me, Eric, or Ken, if you would like to join us.  As of now, the most likely weekend will be January 29-31.  The preferred hotel is the Super 8 in Le Claire, Iowa.  We will not reserve a block of rooms in advance for this trip - please call the hotel to book your room in advance.

We hope to see you there!


  1. Any takers?

    Are you thinking Friday evening travel, shoot Saturday and then on Sunday morning?

  2. Hi Ken: That's what I'm thinking. Eric is also "in". I guess we could possibly leave before COB Friday if we can clear our calendars.

  3. I heard this was on last night. Haven't had a chance to view it yet, but I believe it was filmed in Le Claire.
