This morning at 8:36 as I was watching gulls on the spillway, they scattered. A Bald Eagle, 4th year I believe, flew over and out over the lake, then landed on the north side of the hatchery. I left the lake about 11:00 after driving around to the sailboat place but did not see him again. After 35 years, this is the first eagle I have seen in Dallas County.
Also, just across the paved path on the south side of the hatchery, I got into a flock of several Brown Creepers, several Golden-crowned Warblers, a pair of Northern Flickers and at least one Ruby-crowned Kinglet and Red-bellied Woodpecker.
