Light Reading

Speaking of bald eagles, the National Research Council has released the report Water Resources Planning for the Upper Mississippi River and Illinois Water. It's a 60-page paperback with an eagle photo on the top third of the front cover.

Here is that photo, which I shot in January of this year. Unlike my Tucson photo that was actually from the Galapagos, this one really was shot on the Upper Mississippi River, just below Lock and Dam 18 in Illinois:

The report is a bit snooze inducing, but you can buy it for $10.80 or read it online at the National Academies Press web site. There's also a more interesting and readable eight-page PDF summary with the same photo on the front page. The summary can be downloaded from the National Academy of Sciences web site.
