The Bobolinks were less visible and less vocal today than they were on Monday when 6 were seen. Today I spotted a male at the south end of Hammock Grove and later on a female in the middle of the grove. Also seen was a Bald Eagle flying low carrying part of a fish and heading east towards Buttermilk Channel at 12:15p just south of Liggett Hall. This is another first for Governors Island.
