After no sightings earlier in the week, discovered the male peregrine falcon in the middle of a morning snack on a ledge above the east facing clock face this morning under bright sun and very blue skies!  Upon completion of the snack, it launched into flight off to the south, made a big loop and […]

Bald Eagle adult pair: Merrimack River

From a distance, nice looks at an adult pair of Bald Eagles this morning perched together overlooking the Merrimack River in North Andover. The eagle on the left has both a silver federal leg band and a possible orange state leg band, but too distant for any positive ID of leg bands. Eagles seen from elevated ball field […]

The new female was seen again late this afternoon just before official sunset time.  Late day clouds moved in this afternoon, so lighting conditions became quite a challenge!  The female was found perched on one of the south side utility poles with the double cross bars.  With less that 20 minutes until official sunset and […]

    Hi, Craig! This site is spectacular! I am working with the 21 st Century program at the Wetherbee School doing a river study of the Merrimack. We took our students on their first barge ride yesterday up river and saw a red tail chasing a great blue heron, many hawks, geese, mallards, and other birds. A rainbow on the way back. I had no idea there were kestrels in the area, nor did I know of the peregrines. My brother ( Craig, also!) has a live video feed of a nest at the top of the Marriott in Boston. I’m wondering if you had time to come share your knowledge with our 3 rd and
    4 th graders at the Wetherbee some day after school? If not, I’ll have them blog you on this site. Btw. I live in a lake in Tyngsboro and witnesses a pair if swans harassing some Canada geese this morning. Can they move! I could go on and on about our wildlife, but that’s for another day. Can’t wait to visit the rookery in NA. Thanks again for your site. Kate Oliver
