Saw a bald eagle being chased by three crows roughly around the corner of Paxton St and Holmes Run Parkway in Alexandria. The eagle flew up the path of the creek towards Van Dorn Street, then came back,eventually landing in a tree. The three crows followed and closed in, and eventually the eagle left and flew off in the other direction towards Duke St, circling at quite a height for awhile before he was gone. It was a mature adult with white tail and white head.
Afterwards headed down to Ben Brenman Park to observe the Green Heron pair nesting on the west side of the park. The other day they were being harassed by two or three red-winged blackbirds. Did not see them disturbed today.
