I haven't been back but I'm really looking forward to another great year at the river. Should be there first or second week of January depending on weather conditions.

Spell of warmth here now but turning colder by the weekend including some single digit lows next week. (Live 90 miles away.) See how it goes come the 1st of the year.

Current temperature in Peoria is 1degree. Forecast doesn't show an above freezing temperature until Jan 3 and then just barely. Official eagle count is still zero-should have an update tomorrow or Thursday. FYI.

We have eagles along the Fox River in Illinois now so there should be some birds out on the Mississippi.

Hi Chris, just checked-no count posted for this week. Noted #15 counted 14 on 12/20. Forecast 6”of snow there for today Friday. Highest temp for Peoria for next week is 13 on Thursday, so looking good for eagles-not good for humans!

I am looking to drive out the second or third weekend in January. Just waiting on counts to go up and any info on the new poles they put up.

Today, Sat. 1/6, at 14 defies description! Eagles everywhere-high/low, in front/behind, fishing, circling. Photogs complaining no time to warm hands or which way to point next! At times we were just giggling. It was just so darn cold!
I was there 3 hours, took 1246 shots. There was never a cloud in the sky.

Small sampling-got a lot of processing ahead!
