    1. Great idea for people to get a chance to see them close up. I moved to N E Missouri 3 years ago and where I live we have a lot of Bald Eagles in this area around this time of year, I have asked the locals why and it seems to be that the climate and food supply is just right. When I lived in Pa it a great sight to see just one once in awhile, close to a Blue Moon Event. But living in Mo I see them all around my area, at times on my way into town I have seen as many as 6 to 8 at times, and to me it is just such a sight to see them fly and interact as a flock, the sheer sight to see more than one is captivating, as to their flight, and majestic way of being that symbol of our Nation!!!!!!!!!!
