Bald Eagles

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,

however.

 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.! ! ! ! ! ! !
