Cold-Weather Birding at Kishwaukee River Forest Preserve

I finally had a chance to get out and do some birding for the first time in 2011. I took my lunch break at a nearby preserve, Kishwaukee River, but birding was slow.

The highlight was two Bald Eagles; 1 adult and 1 immature. I couldn’t get a photo of either and with wind chills in the single digits I struggled to get the shots I got.

Glad this isn’t my bicycle . . .

I think these are Cackling Geese but I’ve been wrong once before (or maybe lots of times!).
