Lake Murray Red Phalarope, Bald Eagle 2/22
Dan Jehl found a Red Phalarope yesterday 2/22 in the AM at Lake Murray in La Mesa. The bird was still present late afternoon in the middle portion of the lake.
An adult Bald Eagle was also seen in the PM on two occasions, eventually grabbing a fish and eating it on the rocks just west of the dam at the south end of the lake.
The continuing first-cycle Glaucous-winged Gull and up to three Bonaparte’s Gulls were present as well.
