Went to Moncove Lake S.P., Monore County today hoping for waterfowl from
the Halloween storm. Saw 2 belted kingfishers & one common loon. As we
looked at the loon through the scope we noticed it looking straight up.
Turned out there were 2 immature bald eagles circling above it. Also, saw
an adult bald eagle.
We kept a roadside raptor list plus ravens - total was: 30 common ravens,
99 turkey vultures, 8 black vultures, 9 bald eagles, 1 red-shouldered hawk,
16 red-tailed hawks, 3 American kestrels and 2 unidentified accipiters.
