Birdwatchers are thrilled by huge flock of bald eagles spotted near Glenwood, Iowa.

Motorists traveling on Iowa's Interstate 29 got to see a spectacular show of wildlife Monday.

Dozens of Bald Eagles, by some counts over a hundred, filled the trees at the Pacific Junction Wildlife Area.

Jim Deitchler of Glenwood was on hand with his camera.

"This is unbelievable, totally unbelievable, I've never seen them like this before," he said.

""It's pretty impressive, we usually don't see them like this. We have a few nests in Mills County that are actually used every year but you don't see congregations like this in Mills County of bald eagles," said Jerad Getter of the Mills County Conservation Board.
