It was a cold day but thankfully only slight winds. Both feedings drew roughly 50 birds and there was a great deal of ground activity. Reports were received of the peregrine making an appearance on Fred Thomas Road and a red tailed hawk was sited doing a flyby at the eagle site.
The eagles came down at both feedings 5 to 10 minutes after I drove off the site.
The glut of chicken has started as I picked up 12 buckets today. I'll do two feedings tomorrow at 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!
