Tom Turner of Cushing captured this convocation of eagles on Jan. 24 in Warren.

The stretch of the St. George River from Warren south to Thomaston has the highest concentration of active bald eagle nests in the entire St. George River watershed. Each morning, they set out in search of food, soaring above the river corridor and winding their way downriver. In the afternoon, they begin making their way back upriver to roost. The parade of eagles is best observed on early winter mornings when the cold air provides optimum viewing conditions for this majestic sight, according to information from Georges River Land Trust.
