^^^ Brave. The last time I went there when it was this cold it was mostly fog. I see some in your pics but it looks like you got some nice shots out of it.

ya it was pretty bad, so I went to the island so the camera wouldn't get so much moisture. It was out of the wind and less fog.

a couple from rock falls yesterday, been a good week/month. Yesterday there was one sitting in a tree and let me get out and set up without flying away. I was sitting in the truck when it first swooped down and tried to steal a fish from a goose and fly back to the tree, but now I was ready. Soon it moved down to another tree but I kept watch on it. While talking with someone I noticed it swoop down again but couldn't get zoomed out & it was too close. So I am learning to be patient lately and with reward. I noticed another ME come down into the wind this time, at a perfect distance but it happened quick and the camera was a little tilted and focus wasn't perfect, but I did get it in the frame this time.

Let's hope February is a good month as well. Looks like the numbers are up at L&D 14 so I think that's a good sign for Rock Falls as well. With the snow storm today I won't be there but tomorrow is a good possibility. Looks like it's suppose to be a sunny day as well.

Found these two hanging out with the ducks and geese on the Fox River in Batavia by the old windmill.

The Drakes were checking out the female. I think I sensed some jealousy. ;)
