Made it to the Northern Reaches, and found one of the resident Bald Eagles.  It was a fabulous sight to be able to see, almost like greeting an old friend.  He was searching for fish, but didn't come up with any while I was in the area.  Great Blue Herons flew from the rookery to the open area, but it was quiet and uneventful.  Yes, it was a perfect morning.
