In many ways it was a day similar to yesterday but without as many as 60 eagles.
The early session had a prompt aerial response which was excellent and the ground action which followed was also very good. Initially there was a single spectator but another joined us before the action ended.
The only sighting of Redneck was between feedings at at the far northeast corner of the field.
The second feeding, like yesterday, got off to a slow start. There were a dozen eagles left in the trees but very little happened for the first half hour. It then began with a series of flybys and taking of chicken on the wing. Soon after the eagles began to gather on the ground while the aerial acrobatics continued.
Hi up in the sky there were several soaring eagles and these brought in additional numbers. By the end of the show we had 30 - 35 eagles.
Attendance at the second showing was up to a dozen or so with one visitor from Edmonton, Alberta.
Tomorrow we are expecting rain, so it is not a good forecast for eagle watching. The viewing area is already fairly churned up so come prepared. I will feed at 9:30 and 11:30.
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!
