I was driving along Snake Mtn. Rd. in Addison this afternoon and flushed up 6 
Eastern Bluebirds. There were 2 males in the group and their colors were 
brilliant. I found them 2.6 miles south of where Snake Mtn. Rd. intersects with 
Rte 23.

Later in the afternoon, I was driving south on Basin Harbor Rd. in Ferrisburg. I 
had just passed Jersey St. when I noticed two adult Bald Eagles on a snag,  
across the Big Otter River. One Eagle was eating something (my guess would 
be a fish). The other Eagle was perched above the 1st one & to the its' right. 
The 2nd one seemed to want some of the meal, but the 1st one had 
apparently reserved a table, only for one... That was the best look I've had at 
adult Bald Eagles. The sun was behind me and they were only about 35 feet 
away. I stayed in my vehicle while observing them & they did not get spooked.

Enjoy Birds,
