Thank you, Bev! It was an odd sighting this year. There were fewer eagles out Saturday morning than I've ever seen at previous festivals. On Sunday, there were more of them (and they more vocal than I've ever heard them before, constantly calling out and trilling), but while we were there both days they made no move for the chicken carcasses that had been tossed out for them on the field. Sunday morning a festival representative told the very large crowd that on Saturday, children and dogs were running around outside the viewing area, which made the eagles reluctant to come down from the trees, so he urged people to stay quiet and monitor their children and dogs. Unfortunately, after he left, the same kind of thing thing happened. People were moving out beyond the viewing area, and children were running around with what seemed to be little in the way of parental supervision. People walked right up to the trees where the eagles were, flushing them out. I think it may reach a point where the festival organizers need to do more than post signs and pylons. They may need to rope off the viewing area and have a festival representative there at all times.
