Immature Golden at Harvey's Knob!

September 15, 2013.  Dillard at the helm; Baron counting BWs.  Barry Kinzie made the call after clearing his throat:


Mature and immature Broadwings over my house in early September

Local Young Redtail over the Knob (9/13):

Carls' Big Day (His first day as a counter): 8/27/13

Why it was a lousy looking day - you couldn't even see the diddles for the haze - but there was a good wind from the Northwest.  Two birds in the morning.  Plenty of time to eat lunch.  Then there was this bird over the south ridge (TadRidge some say), white head and tail, then another coming over the ridge with Purgatory for a backdrop (barely visible).  Then two more, one immature, to wit:

In less than 10 minutes!

Then twenty minutes later:

About an hour later:

And, finally, less than 10 minutes later:

Quite a first day!!  

I'd say it was a August Eagle record!

Way to go Carl!

Seven Eagles on a hazy August day!!!!!

Check the sheet for this date to see details and other birds.

Makes you wonder what the rest of the season will bring.
