I was at the Brownsville platform on Saturday p.m. and noted 203 Bald
Eagles in one scan of the river and associated flats and I'm sure I
undercounted.  There were also 20,000+ coot, 2 black ducks, 800 swans
(several thousand at the old platform a mile to the south), and tens of
thousands of ducks.  The refuge survey showed over a third of the world
population of canvasbacks is on the river now between La Crosse and Rock
Island, Illinois.  I have a third hand account of a snowy owl seen last
week near Reno in the lower Root River Valley, no other details.  Bob
