Today a young bald eagle flew over my head at the Arden Hills Army Training Site Wildlife Observation Area. I also saw: a pileated woodpecker, an eastern bluebird, some chickadees, heard some song sparrows, saw my first of the year yellow-rumped warbler, two common loons, one trumpeter swan, four goldfinches, four blue jays, a crow and lots of red-winged blackbirds.

Tonight I saw a swan fight at the Arden Hills Army Training Site Wildlife Observation Area. They chased each other around the lake and one managed to pull some feather out. It was dark and high ISO but I got the action.
Also saw: two osprey gathering sticks from a nearby tree, tree sparrow mating, a pair of eastern blue birds, four talkative blue jays and some ducks and Canada geese.
