Three Eaglets!

Big news!

The nesting bald eagles in the meadow have not one, not two, but THREE eaglets in the nest!

We are so happy for the proud parents!

*A quick reminder that the meadow is private property*

A recent bird count in the meadow also accounted for the species listed below. A great reminder that dairy farmers do more than just make milk – we are protecting open spaces which is good for wildlife, biodiversity, ground water, health and wellb eing, property values, and more.
