Subject: [Va-bird] Eagles at Mason Neck / Occoquan Bay NWR
     Despite much of the Potomac River and Belmont Bay being frozen in Fairfaxand Prince William counties, I counted 12 adult and juvenile eagles on the ice 1/7/18 on Belmont Bay between Mason Neck State Park and OccoquanBay National Wildlife Refuge.  (I also saw two mute (?) swans.)     It's a great time to visit OBNWR before the eagles return to their nest on the Charlie Road trail because that's when Fish & Wildlife closes that trail. I was told that due to cutbacks, they will NOT mow a trail this year to detour around that closure.My private pix (temporarily) here: Neck:
