My wife said, "How pretty!" We looked at them for a couple of minutes and I said, "The cats!" She jumped up, ran into the yard yelling, "Kitty, kitty, kitty!!!" at the top of her lungs. The cats knew something was up and bounded into the house. She was completely nude at the time. I still haven't stopped laughing.

I just wanted to add to the conversation that I live in Iowa and this is not all that uncommon.
It is normal to see large amounts eagles and Hawks gather from time to time, even in the "metro" area of Des Moines. That being said, I have lived here most my life and have never seen that many in one place.
Fault lines....rainbows....I don't know, but let's not look too hard at this....until the New Madrid goes
The bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus), our national bird, is the only eagle unique to North America. The bald eagle's scientific name signifies a sea (halo) eagle (aeetos) with a white (leukos) head. At one time, the word "bald" meant "white," not hairless. Bald eagles are found throughout most of North America, from Alaska and Canada to northern Mexico. About half of the world's 70,000 bald eagles live in Alaska. Combined with British Columbia's population of about 20,000, the northwest coast of North America is by far their greatest stronghold for bald eagles. They flourish here in part because of the salmon. Dead or dying fish are an important food source for all bald eagles.

Just as the gathering of vultures shows there is a carcass nearby, so these signs indicate that the end is near.
For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
