While many were watching the Broad-winged Hawk migration extravaganza near the Tompkins SPCA, I was in the Montezuma complex yesterday afternoon.
I saw 1 adult BALD EAGLE at the Mont. Aud. Ctr. & About 3:45 pm 3 more adults scaring ducks by the main pool on Wildlife Dr. Saw one then unsuccessfully fishing in Seneca River. Then near the carp place, I got great looks at a MERLIN atop a large bare dead tree. Then I saw a GOLDEN EAGLE flying towards me , then away. First sighting in long time for me! No sign of BB Whistling Ducks. Saw lots of hunters; hearing regular gunshots across Cay. Lake (practicing?). What is (will be) in season?
