A slow day on the ridge. I was thankful for the company of our observers and visitors but unfortunately we didn't have much to look at today ! Not for lack of effort !! The birds just didn't show. Our Bird of the Day selection goes to one of our " local " Bald Eagles known as "Lefty". Lefty is very identifiable as he had an injured left wing that had healed but his primary flight feathers still need some work! Lefty came in for a great look today and was very tight to the ridge on the river side before crossing directly over the watch site in close range!
