A Very Exciting Day!

Today was the most exciting day so far this fall! We got our first Golden Eagle fly-over of the season (I didn't see it of course, because I was at lunch), we saw our first Northern Goshawk of the season, and the raptor banders caught a juvenile Bald Eagle and brought it to my workplace so everyone could see it!
Also, many more migrants are showing up each day including many varieties of sparrows and finches including Pine Siskins (not photographed yet)
