After finishing up with the frozen waterfalls of Starved Rock State Park early Saturday Feb 28th due to ice climbers on the falls. We were already two thirds of the way to Rochelle and had little to no wind and really good light. Even though I didn’t have all my big glass we decided to buzz on up to see if we could find any of Lee County Snowy Owls that has shown up again this winter. I only had my new 100-400mm MKii. I carried it on my Canon 1DX during the hike in Starved Rock in case I found a great horned owl on her nest.
Six or 7 different owls, 4 or 5 males, and only 2 females way out in the field. Last year there was only 1 male and 14 females. I posted the 4 different locations of these photos on ebird.org.
Life is good and I am blessed!
