Eagles scream warnings to foes, and nags that they are tired and hungry and want to be relived from nest duty. But this seems more like socializing.

The setting is the Mississippi flyway on the Wisconsin shore. The Mississippi and Rock are important flyways for migrating birds that winter and summer in Wisconsin. And they are wetlands for year-round species.

The Rock River's Horicon National Wildlife Refuge, managed by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, is often referred to as the "Everglades of the North." The 24/7 4-K Mississippi River Flyway LiveCam in Wisconsin, operated by the Raptor Resources Project, provides wonderful views and understanding of the creatures around us and spectacular seasonal landscapes.
