An immature Bald Eagle (not counted) made a strong case for Bird of the Day by doing its best impression of a Raven--performing aerial acrobatics over Mohican late in the day. However, the 5:15 Bald Eagle that passed closely on the reservoir side (bathed in sunlight that would make BB smile) earns top honors.
Non-raptor Observations: Winter Wren - in full song on my hike down the mountain at end of day. Robins - several flocks crossing ridge. TVs. BV - 1. ======================================================================== Report submitted by Brian Hardiman (<hardimanbrian...>)
