It was another snowy day. The sun promised to come out between feedings but then slipped behind cloud cover giving both sessions a diffuse light.
The ravens greeted me for the first feeding, joined by a single eagle flyby before I left the field. As has become the norm, the eagles took to the air almost immediately but the flying display was curtailed as the eagles took tot he ground quickly. It was a very good ground display and I counted about 50 eagles.
The second feeding was very similar with perhaps a slightly larger aerial display and a bit less ground activity. The eagle numbers were down slightly: say, 40 - 50.
We were joined today by a lady from London Ontario and two ladies who flew in last night from Washington D.C. They arrived at the very end of the first feeding but I didn't see them at the 10:30. Hopefully they are settled into their accommodation and I will see them tomorrow. It's the last day for my friends from Huntsville and Bomanville who have enjoyed their week. Safe travelling, guys and i hope to see you again in the future.
It's not broken at the moment so I'm not going to fix it. Same times of 8":30 and 10:30 tomorrow.
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!
