- Adult Bald Eagles are on occasion seen around the Rodman Slough area in the vicinity of the bridge. Take Nice-Lucerne Cutoff road from either hiway 20 or 29.
The best location is in the northern part of the county at Lake Pillsbury-Mendocino National Forest. On several trips to that location this year I and others have seen an immature Bald Eagle as well as adult birds on some of those trips. Go to the campground areas at the north end of the lake.

- Driving from Potter Valley west on Highway 20 Wednesday morning, glanced to my right and saw a pair of Bald Eagles flying together along the river. Always a treat to see them. I also had a Varied Thrush pass through my feeder area. They are probably fairly common, but that's the first one I've seen here since I've been in Potter Valley.
