Gray's Lake, Des Moines, Iowa
The news of an eagle nest with two eaglets was big news. The nest was located across the Raccoon River from the park in an inaccessible area, which was great because it kept people at a reasonable distance. I visited from the time the eggs hatched until they flew the nest. Both the male and the female feed and cared for the young.
