Falco sp. - Coles Creek Recreation Area, Clinton County, Illinois , October 15, 2017. Likely a Peregrine, this bird raked through the gull roost at ground level and scattered the flock over the lake. My first shoots of the bird within the throng of gulls were greatly out-of-focus as the auto-focus couldn't adjust quickly enough.
