Raptor Wednesday

Keep watching the skies!
Two Sundays ago was overcast and ready for rain. A distant passing bird, which I thought would be a gull, turned out to be a Bald Eagle heading SSW.

This was, mind you, after spotting:
A Cooper’s Hawk.
A Merlin.
And a Sharp-shinned Hawk. This one was in the Merlin Bowl — the little falcon’s theater of operations — and we initially assumed it was the Merlin again. Always be looking.
Last Thursday, another passing Bald Eagle. This time a juvenile or subadult.
