Caledon eagles survey their domain in this file picture

Last week, I mentioned in a post that I had seen a bald eagle on my way to work, and that encountering the beautiful raptors was becoming more commonplace away from their usual haunts along the tidal Rappahannock and Potomac.  One of those spots is half an hour’s drive East of Fredericksburg at Caledon Natural Area.  The 2,579-acre park, off State Route 218, is a gathering place for eagles, and  a spectacular place overlooking the Potomac.  Caledon offers limited tours of the eagle areas from mid-June to September. But there’s lots of other reasons to go. See the event listing for March here.
