Raptor Wednesday

In the distance, the eagle is landing. Saturday morning, a young Bald Eagle was flying around Green-Wood again. Someone spotted two of them on Sunday. I heard one was spotted on Monday morning, chased by Red-tailed Hawks.
But back to Saturday’s personal encounter. The left leg band is black, but I couldn’t read it. Here’s the R/7 story. The enormous bird flew across the pond, causing the ducks and geese to noisily skittle across the water.
The eagle landed in a pine, stirring up the Common Grackles. Looks like a couple of the big pines here are hosting grackle nests this year.
And of course the crows started rioting.
The band on the bird’s right leg is silver, a USFW tag.
