I don't know if all the fun is over, but I'll be making my first ever trip to see the eagles tomorrow. (It's sort of on the way to our ultimate destination - Chestnut Mtn in Galena.) From the tracker, it looks like the eagle traffic was moderate last weekend, and I'm hoping that the cold weather this week has maintained the same conditions...

Man o man am I getting the itch to go back to the dam. Hopefully they arrive sooner this year with this cold weather we are having. It would be great to be able to do some shooting in Dec.

Here's one from last season that was more unusual than most I've gotten, with some fog in the shot it was hard to get the focus to lock on

I just realized I did'nt post any pics in this thread and this thread helped me out immensely before going to L&D14 last year for the first time,

these are from jan 24,25 and 26 last year.
Looking forward to going back in Jan again this time with my new 5dIII and a rented 200-400L all these pics are with my 7D-100-400L combo

Excellent shots. I'm already seeing people posting eagle shots from L&D 13.

I noticed areas of ice today-11/21-on the Illinois River in Peoria. That is the good news-bad news is it was in the middle 30's today and forecast is in the 50's and rain over the weekend. Going back down below freezing after Monday. FWIW.

The itch to get out and look for Eagles hit me the other day, I can't wait to get back to L&D 14 soon.

Not an expert on this, but the season could possibly be a little early this year (although some 40 degrees in the forecast). Was out along the Illinois river Wednesday 12/3 and saw about a dozen! Don't remember ever seeing that many in such a small area. Most were too far but had a few chances-and totally blew them all! Supposed to be clear tomorrow (Saturday) so will try some other camera settings.
Has anyone checked 14? I'm only 90 miles away so may take a ride over next weekend if weather is nice.

Crappy weather this morning. By the time the sun came out I had to go. Soft light = soft eagles. :-(

May be soft, but it is a nice capture for the new eagle season.
