An adult Golden Eagle was at the Rapids Lake MVNWR this morning. When
I first came upon him he was fairly low over the grassland of the
refuge towards the hunters lot as you drive in towards the visitors
center. He ascended following the grassland toward the northwest.
I wonder if this is the same bird reported earlier in the week at Bass
Ponds. Other birds of interest today were Harris's, Song, Swamp
Sparrow, and a flock of around 60 Snow Geese that flew over Spring
Peeper Meadow heading southwest. A Rough-legged Hawk was at Rapids
Lake on Tuesday this week, and there were stlll some Bluebirds and an
Orange-crowned Warbler at Carver Park on Thursday. Lake Waconia
yesterday was emptier except for a couple Common Loon, some coot, a few
distant duck, and scattered gulls on the center of the lake.
