On a tip from another Illinois birder, my wife and I tracked down the roost to find this Osprey holding down the fort. As we approached, he/she took flight and insisted on checking us out. The sunlight was rather difficult, but this image came out alright. I only cropped about 10%. I shot with a D2H, Nikon 300mm f/2.8 and 1.4x TC.....handheld.
