Our first bald eagle for the late summer/fall time has shown up. Ducks pepper Lake Bowdoin of both those coming in to fatten up before migration and those still toting around a brood. Shorebirds are flocked up and starting to pass through. The busy energy of spring is winding down to a slow crawl of warm summer weather before the big push south. Don't worry, the sound of insects fills the air even if the birds are quieting down.
