eagle-captionEditor's update, added 22 November: A reader has pointed out that, although the photographs are authentic, the text that accompanies them in this article is a fabrication.  We have published Feeding the Eagles:  The Real Story, which is actually much more interesting than the fabrication.

January of this year 2012, the weather stayed so cold in St. Louis, Missouri and Alton, Illinois that the bald eagles were cruising over houses in hopes of a quick meal. They could not access fish that were "hibernating" at the bottom of the river and had gathered together in a populated area.

Some kind souls decided to feed the eagles so they would survive the cold spell. They gathered fish and started feeding the group of eagles huddled on the shore.  The photos below show what happened. A retired teacher took these photos in front of his home. Incredible!

As you enjoy the great pictures, just remember that it was not too long ago that the American Bald Eagle was an endangered species.

Once the fish were thrown, the eagles did not seem to fear the good Samaritans and word spread fast!
