Red-letter Day at Mount Peter

Judy Cinquina writes:

We had a very exciting record on Sunday on Mount Peter. Had to call our founder, Stiles Thomas to tell him.

To think that from the late '50s through the mid-'80s, we were happy to get one, two or even three Bald Eagles over our lookout.

What a feather in our caps that we have cleaned up the environment for these lovely creatures to increase and produce today's record.  

And seeing 8 Sandhill Cranes from the lookout isn't bad either!
