In recent years, one of the most exciting developments in the New Hampshire bird world is the explosive increase in the number of Bald Eagles nesting and wintering in our state. Decimated during the "DDT era" of decades past, the eagle has made an amazing recovery throughout the north-east, and is now a more and more common sight (though no less awe-inspiring!) along our river valleys and beside our lakes and ponds.
Each year, New Hampshire Audubon biologist Chris Martin leads a team of volunteer "surveyors" to take a census of Bald Eagles present in our region. This January, the Harriers are invited to come along! Join us for a half-day survey of the Surry Dam area near Keene, as we help sight and document this most majestic and striking of all our raptor species.
Meeting times and itinerary have yet to be finalized—stay tuned! Let us know if you're interested in participating, though: R.S.V.P. to firstname.lastname@example.org.
