Its never really dull here if you enjoy nature. I often see deer and wild turkeys in my yard. In the Spring I can see the males fighting over the females and puffing out their chests and tails.

This time of year is cool. Bald Eagles Winter over here. They are along the Mississippi River just about 26 miles away. And they are here too at the very close Rock River.

Then in the Spring time, White Pelicans stay for a while.

I never knew such things could be seen in Illinois back when I lived in the city.

Ohoh do I detect another disenchanted Obama-hater?  There seem to be a lot of you around these days.  Good to see you again Gig

Lodger I really like the way you are actually seeing things around you.  while I do live in the city, it is less than a half hour to wild country.  As I travel I see so many people looking at their tablets or phones and never seeing half of what is going on around them.

Everything came alive when you guys got Obama out of the state... Can you recall him for the sake of the nation?
