Next is a visit to the National Eagle Center in Wabasha. They have 5 or 6 eagles here that they are helping to recover from injuries. If they feel they are able to return to the wild they let them go. Otherwise they stay there for the rest of their lives.
This Eagle, Harriet, was hit by and car and had a broken wing. She is unable to return to the wild. She is the one pictured on the license plate with an eagle. You can learn more about Harriet and the National Eagle Center Here
Here she is being fed. She is pretty spoiled and is saying "fish again". They get fish almost every day, but they know that sometimes they get other things that they love, like rats.
Up close and personal. Who is giving who the Eagle eye here?
Here is the bridge that goes across the Mississippi River from Wabasha to Nelson, WI
The other side of the bridge later in the day.
We ate dinner at Slipperys Restaurant near the bridge. It is where the movie Grumpy Old Men was filmed
I will be joining these memes this week.

Until next time,
