Sorry I missed yesterday's blog - the all but a handful of you that stayed away today were not affected. There were two brave men for the 9:00 am feeding. Initially there were half a dozen eagles and at least a score of crows and ravens. However, within fifteen minutes there were 30 eagles at the site and a very good display followed.
By the 11:00 am feeding the hardy Newfoundland ladies made it up from Metro where they were staying. Girls, I love the card and contents, you are very kind.
There was a sole eagle sitting in a tree across the road when I threw the chickens out and because I had a dental appointment I couldn't stay and see what developed. However, when I returned two hours later all the chicken was gone, so no doubt something happened.
It will be two feedings again tomorrow and Sunday with 8:30 and 10:30 being the times both days.
I saw the Canada Geese again today. I'm not sure why they are hanging around but hope it's not because they arrived early for spring. They should move south, but I'm sure the expression "silly goose" has a basis in fact! Maybe they're waiting for favourable winds.
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!
