A pair of mating bald eagles has returned to downtown Wichita for the third straight winter.

The pair arrived separately last week at their nest in the Twin Lakes area of Wichita.

Photographers have chronicled nearly every waking moment of the eagles' lives during their last two visits.

And most of the watchers are hoping this will be the year they pair produces some eaglets.

The eagles migrate from the northern Great Lakes to Kansas lakes and rivers. When the state's lakes freeze, the eagles move to rivers, including the Arkansas River in downtown Wichita. This pair of eagles usually stays in Wichita until late February or early March.
