The golden eagle at Sikes Lake was again on the scene today. Photos on my website show him arriving at a favorite perch across the road from the lake. He joined a bald eagle at the top of the fir. After preening and looking around, he left, accompanied by the bald eagle. There seemed to be some unfriendly jostling going on.

Continuing with the theme of antagonism, minutes after they left a peregrine falcon was seen attacking a juvenile northern harrier. They were sort of far off but you’ll get the idea. This is most likely the same harrier seen annoying the golden eagle recently. A little give and take.
