SBC Field Trip to Cape Henlopen State Park: 60F, sunny with high clouds, winds NNE about 15 mph. Before we even set off on the Gordons Pond Trail, a mature bald eagle swooped low over the parking lot, landed in a nearby pine tree, and proceeded to devour an unfortunate fish. He had a tasty treat and we had a great view! 24 birders then walked the Gordons Pond Trail southbound to bench 5 and back.

14 birders then braved the brisk north wind to scope the sea at Herring Point.
