Rick Remington will share photos of the diverse bird populations that inhabit this amazing area tucked into NW Illinois. This beautiful land untouched by glaciers in the last ice age, borders 3 different states including Iowa, Wisconsin and Illinois. The big avian attraction here is the mighty Mississippi River which is largely responsible for the many different species migrating through the area each year. Rick will share photos of birds from all seasons with a primary focus on Bald Eagles, White Pelicans and Trumpeter Swans. He will share his favorite locations based on countless hours of exploring the area with his wife Jennifer. Don’t miss the opportunity to learn about this incredible resource located just 2.5 hours from the city of Chicago!
