The weather meant that there were no photographers or spectators at the site this morning. But.... I was not alone!
As I threw out the chicken at 8:30 I was given a flyby from a large mature eagle who came within 20 feet of me. Later, when my back was turned, he/she took a chicken and and sat eating it about 20 yards from me. This led to more birds flying in my orbit which was a thrilling experience. I left the field and as i did so the remaining eagles came down.
We have been pretty steady at 40 - 50 birds of late and that was also true of both feedings today. Sadly, there was no close encounter on the second feeding.
Feeding times tomorrow 8:30 and 10:30.
Malcolm lives in Sheffield Mills and is our resident eagle feeder. He feeds the eagles daily and has a unique relationship with these large birds. These are his adventures!
