Bald Eagle sightings four days in a row
I have seen Bald Eagles each of the last four days, only leaving the city once, and without making an effort for any of them:
Monday- perched on a high tension tower in Metairie
Tuesday- spotted at a distance while I counted robins flying across the UNO campus
Wednesday- two on the I-10 span between Kenner and Laplace (one at the nest by I-310, another while crossing the spillway)
Thursday- one three year old (dark tip on white tail) over the UNO campus
Friday- none, bummer!
What a wonderful thing, given that the species remained essentially extirpated from our area just a few decades ago.
