Argo Dam

Stopped. Watched. icon

I am now sitting at my desk watching two bald eagles fly upstream, just passing over Argo Dam. First time for two at once and flying so low. Also seeing great blue herons just below the dam for the first time in 10 years in the wintertime, even below zero.

    On Thursday, I saw a heron stab a walleye so large that it couldn’t swallow it. The heron then carried it over to the shore and pecked at it long enough to cut it into manageable sized chunks.

    The little open water that can be found is great for bird watching. Even my backyard heated birdbath is drawing big crowds.

    How wonderful! Last year about this time, there was a pair of bald eagles just upstream on Argo Pond. With the ice cover, they were found perched on the edge of the ice, fishing, every morning for about a week.
