Bald eagles feed on snow goose at the Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge in northwest Missouri near Mound City. Rather than kill another snow goose, the eagles prefered to fight one another over carrion already on the ice. The colder the weather, the more agressive the eagles seemed to be.

An amazing supercell tracks across southern Nebraska, producing other-worldy storm structures. At times this storm looked like a giant tsunami in the sky. The supercell formed after two supercells merged near McCook Nebraska. It then tracked eastward as one storm till it died after midnight east of Hastings Nebraska.

Very intense high precipitation supercell storm moves south in the Nebraska Sand Hills south of Valentine, July 13, 2009. Very low, long and fat inflow cloud stretches east of the storm. Winds gusted upwards of 60+ mph into this storm. Tornado warning with the storm mentioned baseball size hail and winds in excess of 100 mph, a rare warning text indeed. As intense of a storm as it was, it only produced one short-lived small tornado. Traffic heading north up highway 83 would be driving right into the storm's forward flank downdraft, which contained large hail and intense rain.
