Bald Eagle Feast

January of this year 2012, the weather stayed so cold in St. Louis, Missouri and Alton, Illinois that the bald eagles were cruising over houses in hopes of a quick meal. They could not access fish that were at the bottom of the river and had gathered together.

Some kind souls decided to feed the eagles so they would survive the cold spell. They gathered fish and started feeding the group of eagles huddled on the shore.

The photos below show what happened. A retired teacher took these photos in front of his home. Incredible!

Once the fish were thrown, the eagles did not seem to fear the good Samaritans and word spread fast!

No zoom lens used here! The photographer was this close! 

Here are the men who were feeding them.

  1. The eagles are real, but they clearly are not in St Louis.
