Big Thank You to Jack McCormack for covering the count for a few days in my absence !!! Thanks Jack ! Per Jack- The Bald Eagle show continues at Raccoon Ridge with easily an additional 20 Bald Eagles seen but not counted ! Bird of the Day selection goes to the immature Peregrine that dropped low on the reservoir side and suddenly appears right out in front of the lookout and engages a local kestrel. They go at it for apprx 30 seconds giving unbelievable looks before breaking apart with the peregrine gaining height and heading downridge !
