I haven't found an eagle-viewing spot comparable to the dam near Burlington, Iowa, but it's a 450-mile drive for me from eastern South Dakota. I decided to look at somewhere much closer this week, Fort Randall dam in south-central South Dakota, just 135 miles away.
The eagle count was 11 versus 500 for Burlington, but there were a couple of cooperative juveniles roosting in trees on the eastern shore. The adults were more skittish, but I did get a decent flight shot of one. It was worth the drive. For more see Eaglephoto.net.
