Sparrow Time! - 06 Nov 2011
Everything scattered when a pair of juvenile Bald Eagles soared overhead. I decided to head over to Lake Erie Metropark and the boat launch.
I arrived at the Detroit River Hawk Watch just moments before the first of three Golden Eagles made an appearance. Unfortunately they were way north of the boat launch, so we had to settle for nice scope views from a half-mile away. Two juveniles and one sub-adult bird! For the next hour or so we also had nice looks at several Red-tailed Hawks and Cooper's Hawks. Jonathon Stein and Jeff Schultz were running the show today, and told me of 3 Cave Swallows that passed by first thing in the morning.
