Wow what a difference a day makes...and some of the promissed wind. While yesterday we got lighter winds than predicted, today we got stronger winds than we had hoped for. An internet buddy BigDave came down to the park today and by 10am I think was wondering why?? At 1030am that all changed. The first of 9 Bald Eagles came by. That seemed to open the floodgates. By 2pm we had 200 birds and almost doubled that with 177 in the next hour.
A cast of too many to name contributed today to our incredible day. Coffee's for Walter Dave and I were appreciated. Thanks to Dave for a pizza slice. Thanks to Walter for afternoon coffee. Thanks to Terry? Cori for Timbits and the coffee run. Thanks to Hugh for the buns towards the end of the evening allowing Walter and I a last bit of energy to hang in till nothing was flying. More photos will follow. Thanks to Terry for his contributions of photos today. Those seen above are my shots,but for the 3rd photo which is Terry's.
Todays Totals were:
9-Bald Eagles(5 Juveniles @ 10:30am,10:55am, 12:08pm,12:20pm and 12:30pm) 4 adults(11:45am,1:02pm,1:34pm and 4:20pm)
WHAT A DAY!!
