Lingering Bald Eagles, thoughts on Mounts Helix / Soledad

Lingering Bald Eagles, thoughts on Mounts Helix / Soledad
By – 9:25 am
Monday morning the 2nd, there is what are presumably late-lingering wintering single Bald Eagles at both Sweetwater Reservoir (immature) and Lower Otay Lake (adult). Very rare this late away from the various known regular breeding and summering sites in the county such as Lake Henshaw, Lake Wholford, Rangeland Road, and Lake Cuyamaca. Also at Lower Otay today are lingering single Ring-necked Duck and Glaucous-winged and Herring Gulls–not a real surprise here.Over the past several years, Mount Soledad has proven to be a rather reliable spot for Black Swifts during May with the appropriate weather conditions, and a spot worth checking for Broad-winged Hawks in spring and especially fall. It is quite likely that both those species could also be found at the same seasons from the top of Mount Helix.Paul Lehman, San DiegoSent from the all new AOL app for Android
