Yesterday it snowed all day, and consequently no count was conducted.

Today, partly cloudy weather gave way to blue skies in the afternoon, with a fairly brisk NW wind blowing. Raptor migration remains slow at Whitefish Point, and today was limited to eagles only.

Still, five Golden Eagles wasn't bad - a tie with March 18 for daily high count for this species. (Last year, the daily total for Golden Eagles never reached higher than 4.) Despite the wind, all birds were quite high.

Also seen were two Bald Eagles: an adult and this 'sub-adult II' bird.

A single Snow Bunting flew over the point a couple of times, and around the lighthouse buildings was an Eastern Meadowlark.
