Road along the Illinois River near Shade Lohman Bridge.
It didn't take binoculars to spot these two.
I played a funeral in Pekin this morning. On the way home I detoured along the river under the Shade Lohman Bridge. We've seen Bald Eagles here before. I had the foresight to bring my binoculars and camera. I was rewarded by a fine sighting of two mature birds (one a little more mature than the other) perched for a long time in a big tree along the road on my side of the river. I also saw eagles flying above the river but this was the closest sighting I've ever had in the wild.
