This afternoon we took our usual drive through Old Reid and Buck Creek State Park. Lovely snow scenes, but we saw a few assorted birds and a few deer.
After leaving the park, we headed over to Hodge Rd, hoping to see the Eagles nested there. Though we looked around at the nearby trees and at both nests, we did not see any Eagles.
We were both getting hungry, so decided to head towards Urbana to get some pizza and cut down a couple of backroads. We saw a large flock of crows and slowed down to see what they were agitated about. Across the road from them was a deer carcass....with two adult Eagles feasting on it!
We approached slowly, expecting them to launch, but they stayed at the carcass....apparently their meal took precedence. This was our first look....

Looks like we have 2 active Eagle nests on Hodge Rd.

I watched these turkeys on the Clark-Champaign County border for the better part of an hour. The big Tom courted the hen, but the Jakes (young males) put on a show of their own.

We took a short drive to Huffman Prairie Flying Field last evening hoping to see some Short Eared Owls.
We didn't see a single owl, but did watch at least 5 Northern Harriers.
All images shot with Olympus EM1 M3 and either the Oly Zuiko 300 F4 or the Oly 100-400mm.
