Hi all, Stan Chapman and I had an exciting visit to Peeler Reservoir, DeKalb County, this morning. We found two adult BALD EAGLES. What was potentially significant is that they were showing signs of coupling - we were both pretty sure they were mating at one point (though both with our naked eye, so we can't be 100% sure). They perched very close together in a tree for at least 30 minutes, pecking at each other. Stan and I both thought it possible that they could begin nesting there.
Stan has photos, and I can give the exact location, but I wanted to be a little sensitive in case they do start nesting.
There was also a COMMON LOON and nine RINGED-BILL GULLS.
