Eagles on Mascoma Lake - 2013
Birdwatching on Mascoma Lake has become very popular over the
past years due to the presence of loon, osprey, and bald eagles. This past
summer many were surprised by the appearance of a large eagle’s nest on
the east side one of the islands. With luck and patience, many saw both
eagles at one time. It was questionable whether there any surviving chicks,
Good news! On Dec. 1,2 and 3, we spotted the two adult eagles and
a juvenile on the ice, on the south end of Mascoma Lake in Enfield. The
adults were swooping down and providing food for the young eagle and
taking turns accompanying it as he ate. A few times, all three were spotted
together in respite on the ice.

Hopefully, this coming season will present many new opportunities to
observe these majestic symbols of our nation.! ! ! ! ! ! !
