Darned bird...

Sailing along quite happily the other day and this eagle decides that our wind instrument's transducer would make a great perch. Wondered why windspeed dropped from 20 to 0 knots then looked upwards. Took 10 minutes to shoo him off while he just looked down at us like we were stoopid or sumthin' lol. Fortunately the windvane survived

Re: Darned bird...

Almost the same thing happened to me last winter: it was a crow, not an eagle . The windvane survived, too.
