Young eagleBill "Birdman" Gengler shares this photo and message: "Picture I took this afternoon of a 2-year-old bald eagle sitting in a tree by the boat ramp at Lake Calero. He flew away before I could ask him to smile."

Another new bird at Calero today. Believe it is a Thrush (a Veery) and also called a Western Sulicicola. It was sitting on the message board at the entrance to the lake.

Eagles? Coming right up!

In case you are wondering about our eagles in the "backcountry". I only saw one yesterday, but today it was certainly easy to spot two juveniles sitting on a power pole at the big lake and Mom and Pop posing for my picture while sitting in their tree on the shores of Lake Clementia.  They are back and need a place to live.

I believe this is may be a female western bluebird.  Bluebirds are returning to our area for the spring nesting season, and it is wonderful to see them.

Bluebirds

Paula, I believe you are right, even though it isn't blue yet.  My bird ID is a Western Thrush that probably doesn't turn blue like the male version of yours.  The young ones almost look like twins.  Thanks, hope you liked the mom and pop bald eagles.

Red Tailed Hawks

Oh, and just to clarify the info in the other pictures, the Bald Eagles in the tree are bald eagles, but the Hawks on the pole most likely are Red Tail Hawks - not seen around the lakes very often either,
