My first post!
I took a drive to Busse Lake last Saturday. I was heading East on I90 towards Arlington heights exit. I could of sworn I saw at least 3 Bald Eagles in some dead tall trees! Anyone ever encounters bald eagles around Busse Lake before?

That pair has been there since around 2012. If you saw 3, then they had another successful hatch, and its past fledgling size. Yea! Haven't been back to the nest this year so thanks for the post.
The old ( 1st, and abandoned ) nest's tree fell down over the winter into the marsh. Was a terrible location anyways ( in the standing water). From what i can tell from 90, the nest keeps getting taller. five years of remodeling.:)

At this point you can run into a bald eagle at any sizable body of water.

For real! I see them all the time now. Wasn't that way 5-10yrs ago.
Probably the greatest success story of the endangered species act.
