We had some birding fun last Saturday with another golden eagle sighting. Libby Mills, passing by with her North Cascades Institute class, was actually the first to identify this bird which was hanging around a group of several subadult bald eagles right across from the milepost 100 eagle watching site.
Eagles have been sparse lately, and I don’t expect that to change anytime this season. Luckily, most of the time there are at least 1-2 birds (sometimes more) visible from the three viewing sites. Hopefully enough birds will stick around so visitors can see some in the scopes the next two weekends. Saturday the 23rd we will be greeting some youth from Seattle’s International District. The Kulshan Creek neighborhood kids from Mt Vernon are coming on the 30th, and the International District kids are returning with their elders as well that day.
See you on the river!
