Spring migration has begun in Northwest Illinois. The Bald Eagles are on the move to their summer homes up north. We have had quite a few visits this winter from the visiting Bald Eagles. This one was photographed in the tree at the front of Roberts’ Roost Country Guest House.
This Bald Eagle was resting in the tree on the original “Old Roberts’ Farm”. At the time my Grandfather died in 1971, Bald Eagles were not very common in the area. He would have been very honored to have this Bald Eagle sitting in the tree on the farm he purchased from his grandfather 101 years ago, in 1914.
The gentleman you can see to the left of the photo is my Uncle Glen who built Roberts’ Roost in 1974 after the death of my grandfather and he needed to move from the original Roberts’ Homestead.
Here are a couple close-ups of the visiting Bald Eagles resting at Roberts’ Roost Country Guest House.
The next couple weeks will be prime viewing times for the Bald Eagles in Northwest Illinois. Book your stay at Roberts’ Roost now and you never know you may be able to watch the Bald Eagles from the chairs on the front step of Roberts’ Roost Country Guest House. All winter, hardly a day has gone by that we have not been able to spot a Bald Eagle or two from the yard of Roberts’ Roost Country Guest House. It would have made my family very proud.
