It was, as always, magical for me when yesterday our Island’s returning Raven pair flew over my neck of the woods with their familiar “kraaah” and “prruk”. I jumped on my bike and followed them to Race Point. From there, I observed the two birds scavenging for broken reeds and weathered twigs. They flew off ascending in “frolic flight” towards the Lighthouse.

Islander’s observations From the Field this winter include a bald eagle pair feeling at home soaring on thermal uplifts both east and west, and one taking a respite in a vacant osprey nest. The magic continues with a quite possible immature golden eagle sighting near Oyster Pond and even an Opossum!

*never say never….
