70-73 degrees/clear skies/20 mph winds/morning

Today the Bald Eagle came to visit.  He made a couple of passes around the main part of the lake, and frightened away the young Red-tailed Hawk, who headed north.  I managed to catch up to him, but when he saw Bald Eagle the second time, he fled once again.  I'm not sure if he will return.

A dozen Great Egrets were in the area by 9:30, some of which were obvious migrants.  It is not known if they all left together.  I will know more tomorrow.

Green Heron was seen only one day last week, so it is very possible that he has left the area, but that cannot be determined yet.
