Nanticoke – Birds of Prey Galore!

It was great to see a large number of deer grazing the Nanticoke powerplant property, but at the end of the day, it was all the hawks and other birds of prey that were the highlight of the day.

Down along the shoreline, Eagles can often be found. Today a juvenile Bald Eagle was seen and photographed from quite a distance.

Also witnessed was a Northern Harrier hovering over some grasslands, countless red-tailed hawks, rough-legged hawks, and honestly a few species I’m not even confident to try to identify.

Without question, when it comes to birds of prey, this region is shockingly productive. I’m not sure why so many seem to congregate here, but I’m not complaining!
