Bald Eagle adult

December 19, 2013 in Bald Eagle

An overcast morning with winds out of West at 12 mph.  Temps just above freezing creating some light ground along the Merrimack River banks.  While on lookout for eagles, noticed a some type of disturbance down river that caused over 30 gulls to wheel up in a cloud of circling flight.  Sure enough, an adult eagle heads west up river and lands on a perch.  Leg bands visible but not clear enough o decipher digits on the bands.
