More Amazing Disposal Road Action

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.
