Yellow-throated Warbler

Cooper's Hawk


Bald Eagles

The eaglet in the nest by the saltwater boat ramp is exercising his wings and getting ready to fledge. Parents are watching close by and chasing off intruders. Several other adults are prominent at other areas of the refuge.

There are still 6-8 different kinds of ducks at Lighthouse Pond, though Redheads are the most numerous. A Cooper’s Hawk flushed the flocks, but they settled quickly.

Little birds are numerous around the Visitor’s Center.
