Looking for sunlight I visited the refuge this morning. It was sunny but still a bit of haze.
Kestrels, Harriers and Eagles were the star raptors today. Yes, eagles were there in force today, hanging out in the field along the stream where the dead carp were. Not many flying, perhaps their stomachs were too full of carp!
Tundra swans were closer in - got to watch a couple have a short tiff.
Just nice to be there today!

Ouch - Tundra swans having a disagreement.
The eagles were a long ways away and staying on the ground
