As the Mississippi River froze to the north, parts of east central Iowa have seen a massive migration of American bald eagles. Maury Anderson is a fisheries technician for the Iowa Department of Natural Resources at the office in Bellevue.He says there’re at least a hundred or so of the majestic creatures at Lock and Dam 12 at Bellevue and 150 eagles at the locks near Clinton.Anderson says it’s well worth the drive. He says the best times to see the bald eagles are just after sunrise and late in the afternoon before sunset.
