Take Pictures of Eagles At Clarksvill Mo Round 2

Let's meet in Clarksville, Mo on Sunday Feb 2 at 7:30am. Eagles are present in Clarksville, Mo. Last Last one was absolutely incredible. You will need a Long Lens (Mine is a[masked]mm) and your camera. We will meet at 7:30 in the park by the river. I will be there for several hours.

Also, At 6:00, I will be in the lot just to the south of the Quick Trip on Cave Springs Exit in St Peters. (Two blocks South of the Cave Spring Exit.). I will be leaving the Lot at 6:15. It looks like it is going to be much colder than the last time we went.

    Next weekend looks like a carbon copy of this weekend. I'm willing to try it again though if there is interest.

    I would like to have gone, but it was cancelled at 4:00 AM by the organizer, due to unsafe road conditions.

      I was the one who called it off. The last ten miles or so when I went up was pretty slick. Also, at the time I called it the radar did not look very good. I noticed that a lot of the cars up there had about half inch of ice on them. Also, at the time my subdivision was extremely icy.

    I went up to Clarksville at 10 am. Roads where ok until 10 miles outside of Clarksville. The lighting conditions was very flat. Little if no sunlight. I saw though just tons on eagles. I also went up to Louisiana, Mo and found out that the river was totally ice covered with no openings, I saw no eagles. I went back to Clarksville and still saw many eagles. The light conditions was even more flatter than before. A train came by and decided to have a break issue in the middle of the town. I wanted to leave, but I could not because of the train. Some else decided to hop across the train and slipped, he broke his hip. It took over an hour to get an ambulance there to help him. I was stuck in the parking lot for 2.5 hours. At least the eagles where very entertaining.

    I was there from 830 to just before you left, Richard. Blue skies until 10-ish...

    After looking at the radar. For safety sake I'm going to CANCEL this meetup. I will still try to get to the Quick Trip at 6:00 and notify anyone who shoes up.

    I have ice all over my car, driveway and patio. I just can't drive in this - I can't even really walk in this. I am so sorry to bail on you guys - but I really don't think I can make the drive safely at 6am. Be careful out there.

    I'm on the fence yet gang. I'm tired of freezing my buns and it's looking frigid for day much less the early hours. We'll see.

      According to the Weather Channel, the really frigid condition tomorrow are in the evening and the early morning temps are in the 20s. Of course, the wind whipping off the Mighty Mississippi will make feel a little colder. Take care of yourself.

  • Joe C.

    I will aim at being at the parking lot you mention at 6:00 AM. If I could ride with you, I'd appreciate it. Or we could take my van.

    Hi all, I have a question, I would love to go but my biggest lens is[masked] mm, do you think that lens would work fine? Thanks

    1 · January 31, 2014

    • Jesus

      Thanks, I will be there then.

      I took photos up in Clarksville many years ago. The longest lens I had was my[masked] mm zoom. I got many wonderful shots. Now I will still use the same lens, but on a DSLR, such that it is equivalent to a 160-480. I anticipate getting even better shots. Jesus, I 'm sure you will be pleased with your results.

    I hope Saturday's weather doesn't make things too icy come Sunday!

    January 31, 2014

  • Richard S.

    I hope we don't get very much snow or ice on Sat. This could make the roads very icy.

      The forecastis going to be really frigid for you all. Last weekend when I went to army corps of engineer had fire pits but it was eagle Days In Clarksville. so not sure if they will be out there this weekend. It was low 30's when I went wind chill in the low 20's.I had to go back to my car after 45 minutes to warm up. There were lots of people who were sitting in their cars because it was so cold. And I saw some photographers take a break to go back to sit in their cars to warm up also. So I would bring blankets to either sit on or wrap up in and where extra layers of clothing especially in your gloves. I hope they close the road for you all. Be safe and stay warm. I'm sure the eagles will be out ind numbers also this weekend because of the cold weather

      I meant I hope they clear the roads for you all.

    I went last weekend. The Army Corps of Engineer said they counted over 200 that morning and I had a photo where I counted over 20 in one shot. They were out in numbers last weekend. With all the cold weather I'm assuming it will be the same. Looks like cold winter weather coming this weekend and Sunday may be the only day. Have a great time. Sitting this one out.
