Had a good night's sleep and looked forward to an afternoon of photography. The forecast was for clearing in the afternoon. Before we could go off, I had a bad case of diarrhea. Took some imoden and it seemed to take care of it. I was cautious with drink and no food until after the photography.
We went out to photograph eagles in trees before heading for Lock 14. We went South to Concord Street. We had a couple opportunities, but the light was bad and the trees were quite thick. Out on the ice in this area were snowmobile races going on, and motorcycles races around on the ice. These activities did not help the eagle photography.
Back at Lock 14 the photographers were lined up all along the walk area as well as photographers setting up on the rocks. We estimate that there were about 90 photographers out there today. That is a little less than half of what they had last Sunday!!
There were more seagulls than eagles in our area. The birds seemed to be skittish about coming near the West shore. Even so I was able to get what I believe were a number of good images. The clouds came rolling in about 1500, and it socked in. We finally called it a day by 1530.
