What a gorgeous day! It had everything: 50 to 60 eagles for each session, lots of aerial action including several "robberies" and lots of ground action with 25 -30 eagles on the ground. The weather was great. For the early feeding it was -5 but with no wind it felt warm and the sun made an appearance among the scattered clouds. For the second feeding the temperature was up to -3 and blue skies prevailed. The weather conditions, the number of eagles and the quality of the display made this the best day so far this year.
There is more snow tonight and tomorrow and the temperatures will continue below freezing for a couple of days which should make for good field conditions.
I had a drive by at 1 pm and there were still quite a few eagles at the site. I would like to work up to three feedings before the official weekends arrive on January 25th. If it stays cold there will probably be the demand. The question is will it be sustainable given the supplies to hand.
The big glut didn't materialize today but in anticipation of a big haul tomorrow I am sticking with two feedings. It's going to be cold again tonight and not the time to cut back on the eagles' food unless absolutely necessary. Tomorrow's times will be 8:30 and 10:30 as usual.
