We frequently have bald eagles out here between 38 and Ed Hill Road on Hile
School Rd. I haven’t been home enough to note whether they are settling down
in the woods next door as they did last year and year before. During 2015 we
had at least 3…2 adults or near adults and a juvenile. But one or more
regularly come overhead, sometimes soar toward the great blue heron rookery off
Red Mill Rd, or out toward Fall Creek Rd near Ed HIll intersection. (Notably,
that rookery was totally gone this past summer, although I cannot figure out
how all the nests were suddenly gone. I suspect “management”, but no one
around here has been able to tell me anything.)
There are a lot of “gut piles” around now, from deer dressing, so I am sure the
pickings have been reasonably good for scavengers.
