The switch to a single 9:30 feeding proved very successful today. It was sub-zero overnight but relatively mild and sunny this morning. Only three people showed up to see the eagles but they were treated to quite a show.
The action began as I was driving off the field with a truly excellent and extended aerial display. Numbers were up - I counted about 50 eagles this morning. The ground display that followed was also very good, so I intend to repeat the recipe tomorrow. If the number continues at the higher level I may reconsider the number of feedings, but I think the 9:30 time is convenient as it gives a gap after the local farmers have thrown out their chicken.
Also, I fed four buckets today versus the usual five between two feedings which was the previous practice.
Before I change the routine again I first need to confirm the trend to higher numbers and higher activity levels.
