Hi all

GREAT weather for raptoring on Saturday--sun, cold and no wind. Group had
a fantastic outing seeing all expected birds. Also, we found Golden Eagle
on nest as well as a (new) Bald Eagle nest in Nunn! The Bald Eagle nest in
Nunn was previously attempted last two years but never had an eagle
actually on/in the nest. I'll be watching this one closely.
