Turkey Point - Sunday, February 21 2010

From Dave Lord et. al.:

"Turkey Point Participants enjoyed a lovely day in the provocative time of Late Winter. Natural wonders were all around, including a nest exchange between two Bald Eagles on a new nest toward Beaver Dam; Red-Winged Blackbirds singing their faces off; and a Golden Eagle that was seen pre-walk by a few, perched toward Fortescue Road. Karen Johnson, Janet Crawford, Karen Williams, Tony Klock, Steve Weiss and Dave Lord led."
