The big show at Pea Island continues...thousands of ducks and swans, and abundant white pelicans among others.
Today we had five bald eagles (four adults), one peregrine falcon and one sharp shined hawk. The first eagle was seen on a utility pole near the Comfort Inn in Nags Head...the second soaring over Bonner Bridge, and the rest at Pea Island NWR.
Two other highlights: one pipit in the grass at Pea Island, and one Brant in N. Pond, seen from the path that starts from the visitor center parking lot. Almost forgot, one orange-crowned warbler at Pea Island.
