Bayshore Birds - Sunday, February 26th, 2017

On a brisk, cool evening, the raptors were actively hunting over the marsh. Everyone was treated to fabulous views of a hunting Short-eared Owl as well as multiple Northern Harriers. Bald Eagles appeared to be everywhere at once and close enough to discuss the ages of the birds based on plumage. Leaders: Chris Marks, Bert Hixon, BJ Pinnock, and Mary Watkins.
