Every winter, frozen fishing grounds drive bald eagles south along the Mississippi River, where the turbulence caused by dams keeps small patches of water open and stuns the fish. Eagles gather around the dams by the hundreds as long as the weather stays cold.

These images were shot in mid-January 2014 at dams 13, 14, and 18 along the Iowa-Illinois border.
