Had a great day at the refuge last Friday morning. Sunny and cold but beautiful. The best show of the day was an adult eagle at the nest tree near the Twin Barns with a duck it had recently caught. After a few minutes the eagle dropped the carcass and another adult flew in to claim it, for the next 30 minutes or so it was a cavalcade of at least nine eagles ranging from first year to third year juveniles flying in and challenging each other for the food. Fabulous show. Bittern, Fox Sparrow, Eurasian Wigeon, Red-breasted sapsucker and several yellow-rumped warblers where highlights for me. I’ll be posting pics on my Flickr site in the next few days if anyone is interested. The link is in the signature line.

On the negative side, as I was leaving the lot near the office I noticed a person and staff refuge member cleaning up following another vehicle prowl. They seem to be getting more frequent and bold. The unfortunate victim told me he had many thousands of $$ in camera gear stolen. Not sure if they were left in plain sight or otherwise. But be aware and vigilant and follow best practices for parking in high prowl areas. A sad and concerning sign of the times.
