Subject: Fwd: [Arlington Birds] Menotomy Bird Club Trip Reminder
Sorry can't come, sounds wonderful but I am working that day.
Had some wonderful sightings of four (4!) Bald Eagles there this past
Sunday afternoon, with people there who knew them by name and band number.
Two adults, two juveniles. The female adult caught a fish and then ate it
while the others looked on!
In the course of the 45 minutes I was there they put on quite an aerial
