DeKorte Bald Eagle

Bald Eagle 1-1
In the past week, a first-year Bald Eagle has been seen on at least three occasions by DeKorte Park and vicinity. Ron Shields was in DeKorte on saturday when he got some incredibly close shots.

We are thinking that this guy is result of a successful Bald Eagle nest thi spring, located just outside the district.

We are posting one of the pics here. (Thanks, Ron!)

Who knows? Maybe we'll see the bird again tomorrow, during Kevin Karlson Shorebird Day.
