Sorry for this late post. Saturday, 4-10, Laverne and I were walking at 
Easterly Park in Lebanon when we saw an adult Bald Eagle circling just above 
the ridge line. Peggy Herbert had called us week before last and told us she 
had seen an adult Bald Eagle perched on Big Cedar Creek in Lebanon near the 
trout farm. We also heard Louisiana Waterthrush and Yellow-throated Warbler. 
After finishing our walk we went through Corn Valley and Elk Garden. Along Rich 
Mountain I saw 2 more Bald Eagles and 1 Golden Eagle. Later in the day while 
running errands I saw an Osprey near the Bonanza on Big Cedar Creek, It was 
doing some fine dining on a 13 or 14 inch trout.
