Ron Shields reports:
“What a great day on Sunday at Disposal Road! We had all sorts of action throughout the entire day. The highlight for me was the appearance of a low-flying immature bald eagle over the landfill escorted by two red-tailed hawks and two harriers. The size of the eagle dwarfed the other birds.
“The eagle circled in flight for about five minutes before leaving. About
a half hour later, the same bird returned and repeated his performance only to be confronted and scolded by an adult eagle over the retention pond. Both birds frolicked in mid-air for awhile before heading north. There seemed to be an obvious connection between them.
“In addition, the day included many close views of northern harriers including several passes by a Gray Ghost. Red-tails frequently ‘kited’ on the southerly winds.”
Ron also photographed a Common Raven, below.

Great shots! We filled digital cards and ran our batteries dry. What a day. All the best, Bruce
Great work Ron. I want to see the Harriers 🙂
