I’ve had this map for a few years now, and for all that time, it’s been a private map. A couple years ago, I started working at a camera store, and started giving out the private URL to this map to some of my customers to help them find good places to photograph eagles and other birds. I just recently realized that those customers must have been forwarding or posting this link on the internet because it’s been viewed thousands and thousands of times! So I figured I’d post it here and make it truly public for everyone.
This map has all of the locations I frequent for birding in northern Illinois and surrounding areas. It includes example photographs taken at the locations marked on the map, and there are even a couple of videos included on some of the marked locations. I update this map on a continuous basis, so if you want to bookmark it, you can always come back to it.
