The following is a note from Cynthia Krakowski about the trip.

The Eagle lakes trip was wonderful; I’m sorry you & so many other members missed it (although the small group was nice & intimate).  As you probably saw on our list, we were able to compare dark phase & light phase short-tail hawks.  We watched a merlin tearing into what we think was an unfortunate mocking bird!  The dark phase, short-tail went into a stoop and then when it spread it’s wings we could see a little prey of some sort in it’s talons. We had bronze cowbirds too and black-bellied whistling ducks.  Some of these birds were “lifers” for our members.  It was a very exciting & productive excursion and everyone had big smiles on their faces!! Of course our group is always jolly & full of fun!
