A follow up on yesterday. Due to the stormy weather there was only a 9 o'clock feeding. My Quebecois friend reports only four eagles on the ground at any one time - perhaps half a dozen in total. They didn't come down until 10:30.
9:00 and 11:00 am feedings
Again, not many eagles around. I was fortunate to have my farming neighbour snow blow my driveway or I couldn't have made it. The same chap cleared the way into the field and the viewing strip. Many thanks, Dale.
While the chicken from the nine o'clock feeding had been taken before I arrived back at 11:00 I did not hang around to see the numbers myself. I stayed briefly for the eleven o'clock feeding. I counted a half dozen eagles in the trees and only one on the ground before the cold wind got the better of me.
