Jackson Bottom Birds: March 6-12, 2010

Up to 3 COMMON GOLDENEYES were on Pintail Pond on March 10.

The GREAT HORNED OWL hatched an egg during the week. The fluffy chick was photographed March 7.

The BALD EAGLES are spending much time together this week on the nest. Egg laying is probably imminent.

A light movement of migrants was noted during the week. A WHITE-CROWNED SPARROW was detected as well as a white-striped form of WHITE-THROATED SPARROW.
