A bald eagle was recently spotted at the west end of Prairie Meadow Park in North Central Park. Bird watcher George Ho says, “Sightings of bald eagles in the Central Park area have been uncommon this past winter.” The eagle photo above by Ho was taken in Jan. 2020 along Sand Creek.
The Say’s Phoebe was photographed at Bluff Lake by Ho in April. He says, “It is one of the more common flycatchers that arrive here early in the spring and depart late in the fall. They perch on the tip of a branch and fly off to snatch an insect in flight and then return to the same perch. The flight seems erratic and very acrobatic at times, but they are merely following the flight path of the insect trying to escape from them.”
