Copy of IMG_1149-1
Quick ride along Valley Brook and Disposal Roads at lunch produced a Light-morph Rough-leg, a high-soaring immature Bald Eagle, a Northern Harrier and a Red-tailed Hawk trying IMG_2969-1
unsuccessfully to nail a pheasant on the Kingsland Landfill.

Red-tail proceeded to fly up onto a nearby pole and pose for pictures (right).   

Two Bald Eagles were also way out on the Saw Mill Creek Mud Flat in a distant corner of DeKorte Park.

Shot of the Northern Harrier by Ron Shields is from the weekend but just as easily could have been from today. Thanks, Ron!
