Hi Peter,

I had *2* new species at Bush today.  An adult bald eagle scared everything up off the water, as it circled but didn't find anything to its liking and headed on over to Manhattan.  And secondly this fella.  Sea lion?  Seal?  He did not appear injured but i alerted park staff to his presence and they will keep an eye on him.
