MENTOR MARSH EAGLES RETURN, SAFE AND SOUND, 2013

_DSC4707Photo taken yesterday of Marsh eagle keeping—what else?–an eagle-eye on its aerie a couple of trees south of him. 

All’s well with the pair of eagles who’ve adopted the Mentor Marsh as their nursery, which soon may became actively occupied—Marsh Naturalist, Becky Donaldson, saw them copulating a couple weeks ago.

Becky will lead 4 hikes next month; registration and location information is below.

Upcoming Sunday hike/programs.  All four programs will likely scope out the Bald Eagle nest. All programs meet at the Marsh house at 2:00 pm.

April 7  Spring Surprise; 

April 14 Vernal pool hike;
