Bald Eagle SP 11/11/2010

Today, Nate Fronk, Alex Lamoreaux, Josh Lefever, and I birded Bald Eagle SP from 6:30 to 8:30. We did not see much out of the ordinary besides a raft of roughly 150 American Coots. By the park office, we did see two really nice male whitetail deer battling for a doe. We ended up seeing two other does and one male spike later in the morning. There were two Bald Eagles on the nest as usual. Here is a list of what was seen in the way of birds and a few photos of a Cooper's Hawk and of two whitetails to follow:
