I have the records in front of me Kurt.

We tallied 62 eagles at Mason Neck on the CBC.

My suggested adjustments to preclude double-counting brought the total down to 49, still an impressive number!

I don’t have my notes in front of me but this area of the Christmas Bird Count tallied over 50 Bald Eagles.

(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: https://www.flickr.com/gp/olympusbjs/Bb840KOBNWR: https://www.fws.gov/uploadedFiles/Occoquangenmap.pdf#aMason Neck: http://www.dcr.virginia.gov/state-parks/mason-neck#general_information
