Red-tailed Hawk

Bird of the day was a juvenile Red-throated Loon that we watched through Linda's scope for about an hour as it hung around on the water just out in front of the Watch site.

At the park today were: Norm, Berle, Peter, Mike 2, Theresa, Carol, Ann, Mike & Leslie, and today we welcomed Linda.
