There is a small island in the middle of the Wisconsin River in downtown Prairie du Sac where the eagles like to hang out during the day. So far, it seems like a very good year to see lots of them perching, soaring, fishing and people watching. An ice storm yesterday glazed all of the trees, lending an ethereal air to the scene.

Adult, juvenile and sub-adult eagles share a moment.

A couple of days earlier, the birds were in the cottonwoods along the banks of the river.
