Foggy Start Then A Gorgeous Spring Day

It was a glorious spring day after a foggy start. Spent a couple hours at the eagles nest. Not much happened for the first hour. Then the female left and brought back a fish fed, then flew down close and gathered hay to take to the nest. I did see a Bob-O-Link. First time I have seen one. The bobolink is the small bird on the wire with yellow on the back of the head. One thing of note was that this was the first morning since the eagles started sitting eggs that I did not see the male. The male probably came in later, since I did not stay all that long. Probably out hunting. The male seems to bring in the different food for the eaglets. The female primarily bringing in fish.

Did go out for a few minutes when I got back home in the afternoon. Kept hearing White Eyed Vireo’s that have a very distinctive call. While I looked for it a House Wren was singing along the creek bank as well…

  1. I’ve never seen a bob O link either, that I can remember
    It looks like someone put some hay out for the eagles to nest with.
    Great shots of the vireo!

      They feed and keep hay out for the cattle in the pasture the eagles nest is in. There is about 500 head in a few different sections of pasture. The eagles vary where they pick up the hay remnants. Looking I think maybe for a certain wetness. Thank You…
