Creative Courtship

If you are interested, you may want to watch the sky over Northeast Iowa in areas inhabited by bald eagles. Each of the past few days I have enjoyed watching the almost “trick flight” maneuvers bald eagles execute when attempting to impress each other. Sometimes their flight appears dangerously close to a crash.

When the birds are not flying, some of them are showing pair-bonding as they roost near their nest.
