> It was the Day of the Eagles at Ridgefield NWR today. At least eight BALD EAGLES, mostly ad., were there - in the skies, on the ground, on the ice - much to the delight of visitors, including Sabin Belknap and me. The prize was a beautiful GOLDEN EAGLE that had been flying about before we arrived. It finally perched in one of the large deciduous trees at Point 13 on the Auto Tour Route map, affording close views of the rich tawny nape and large, strongly hooked bill.
