Quick question guys!

I am hoping to drive over on Monday. Right now the forecast is overcast skye with a high of -7.

If the forecast changes to sunny I am 99% certain I am going.

Is there a "too low" of temperature? would the eagles not be active at such a low temperature? I would hate to drive almost 4 hours for nothing.

Thank you!

The last time I went out and didn't see any eagles was during heavy snow. Almost like all the birds, geese and ducks included, took shelter. It was snowing pretty heavy that day.

The problem with those types of low temps will be the fog coming off of the water which will be much warmer.

I took this pic when it was -10 out. Fog is worse the closer you are to the dam.

Here's a pic taken the same day at L&D 14. It was around 3 degrees when I got there.

Here's one more. I didn't have many keepers that day. This one is trash worthy as well.

Had a blast last Mon-Wed, just wish the sun could've been out more. Also would love to have a 500 F4 for next year, would have liked the extra reach most of the time.

Couple shots and 6 more are here... https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1356377

Anyone go out today? I'm debating going tomorrow, but with the windy forecast I'm wondering if it's going to be worth the 2 hour drive.

I'm looking at going on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. But, the wind has me worried as well. Supposed to be -40 wind chill!
