my husband had today off so we headed up to starved rock.

i found this bald eagle on the way to starved rock, somewhere around henry.

10 eagles near the lock & dam at starved rock.

female cardinal near the lock & dam’s visitors center.

bald eagle flying by the starved rock.

gulls at the dam.

the rock.

stopped at buffalo rock.

old stone house in-between utica and ottawa.

we went thru ottawa, and headed back west on IL hwy 71, and we found several bald eagles above the dam.

then we went into the state park and i got this male cardinal.

then we head back home, and i took this somewhere north of peoria.

My family and I went eagle watching at Starved Rock on Friday, and there were no eagles anywhere. We then traveled to Sauk Wisconsin and saw several eagles there. On the way home, we went back through Starved Rock and saw a bunch of eagles. If you’ve never experienced the hiking trails at starved Rock and you like to hike, you need to, but dont fall asleep or you could end up in the hospital.

Ok thanks, I will tell my wife and kids. Eagles do nothing for me, but they like to see them. About as interesting as watching a crow as far as I’m concerned.

I’ve always wondered what that building you have labelled “old stone house in-between utica and ottawa” was.  4 chimneys, 3 stories, had to be commercial at one time, but kind of out in the middle of nowhere.
