    When tempted to fight fire with fire, remember that the Fire Department usually uses water.

    Yes, the wife and I take a trip down the Great River road to Pere Marquette looking at all the eagles and beautiful fall scenery. It certainly doesn't disappoint!

    Here is one more pic of the eagles. If there is anyone in Illinois (around the Lasalle county area) that would allow me to go on there land or know someone who would allow it so I can take pictures of animals and such I would appreciate it.

    I work for a tow boat company and we run the Illinois river .I counted 27 Eagles from Dresden Islend lock and dam to LaGrange lock and dam .Several pairs where hunting fish together on Peoria lake 6 birds in all over a 4 mile stretch .I even witnessed a Bald Eagle snatching up a duck off the ice .From what I hear winter is the best time to witness these great birds ..Slimy

    those are some great pictures. It's not any better time to be out to take pictures. It's still a little cold to be out fishing yet for me. Good luck taking more pictures.
