A Quick Drive Through Emiquon

After having Lunch in Havana, Scott and I headed for Emiquon. As we crossed the Havana bridge, we saw a Bald Eagle sitting in a tree along the edge of the Illinois River. We turned onto the road leading towards Dixon Mounds so that we could drive along Prairie Road, in hopes of finding Northern Harriers hunting the prairies along the base of the ridge. Scott saw what he thought was a big cat trotting long the levee on the south side of the road. When we got closer we could see it was a coyote. I drove forward, stopped the car, and tried to take a photo. It saw me and headed out across the snowy field of corn stubbles.
