12/6, Trap Falls Reservoir, Shelton (830a)- 2 Bald Eagles, one adult and one 3rd year, harassing every bird in the area, especially a poor Ring-bill gull. Also about a dozen Bufflehead, 2 Pied-billed Grebes, 2 female Common Mergansers, 3 of my first Ruddy ducks of the season flying by, and 7 Lesser Scaup. The flock of scaup circled the lake several times before landing, and it was 6 males following every turn of a leading female. Though as soon as they landed, Mr. Eagle sent them back in the air towards the back of the water. There was also a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker in the pines across the road from the reservoir. The bufflehead were showing courtship behavior. -Brian Webster-
