[Tweeters] Des Moines - Migrating Bald Eagles

Hi Tweeters:
At about 3:15pm today, 5 Adult Bald Eagles started kettling up over the ridge above our street, flying quite high (several hundred feet) in the air, whistling to each other. There were no clouds so the birds really stood out against the extremely blue sky. At the top of the circling kettle, 3 pealed off to the NW, one to the NE, and I missed seeing where the other went. This looked like migration behavior, and was quite the show. They never had to flap their wings the whole time.
Yours, Carol Schulz
Des Moines
