9:00 am feeding
It was -14, sunny with a few clouds. Some of the Quebec visitors have returned home via the Gaspe peninsula but four remain. I distributed two buckets of medium and large chicken with the help of two of them.
Two eagles came down quite quickly but the numbers took a while to build. In the end there were forty or so eagles on the ground and in the trees. Not much of a flying display, no doubt influenced by the size of the chickens.
11:00 am feeding
The temperature had risen to minus 8 but the wind had picked up so felt just as cold. The sun was still shining. I distributed one bucket of medium and small chicken and one bucket of large. After 10 minutes there was still no action so I went off on a couple of errands. I returned forty minutes later and the show was already over. Thirty eagles were reported on the ground at one time with at least 10 more in the trees.
