No activity noted this morning but other hikers report frequently seeing adults and at least one chick. The nest is difficult to locate with foliage on the surrounding trees. A unobstructed view is available approx 50 yds down the trail beyond the bench (past the .5 mile marker). Canada Geese and a couple DC Cormorants were the only waterfowl on the lake. Common Carp were spawning on the surface and along the shoreline near the dam. Getting back to eagles, two adults and a juvenile were seen at Lake Barcroft last week.
