Another Eagle Watch Weekend is in the books and what a fantastic weekend it was. The Fourwinds resort was amazing and all the participants saw bald eagles. A couple of them even got distant looks at the only Golden Eagle seen during the weekend. There was even a very unexpected bonus bird for the weekend, a White-winged Scoter, that spent Friday and most of the day on Saturday only a few feet off shore right below the hotel. What a fantastic bird for Eagle Watch Weekend. Final species tally for the weekend was a fantastic 51 species (scroll down to see the list).

We wish to thank everyone that had a hand in making the weekend so engaging and exciting: Jonathan Bauer, Sandy Belth, Mark Loring Booth, Julia Ferguson, Jim & Susan hengeveld, Geoff Keller, Ann Maxwell, Jeff Riegel, and David Rupp. We also wish to thank our host and supporters: the Fourwinds Resort and Marina, Indigo Birding and Nature Tours, and Sassafras Audubon Society. But most of all, we want to thank the scores of participants that are always the greatest bunch of people at any event anywhere. We're looking forward to seeing all of our old friends again next year and meeting many more new ones at the 15th Annual Eagle Watch Weekend, January 23-25, 2015.
