Bald Eagle adult along Merrimack in Lawrence!

January 8, 2015 in Bald Eagle

What a nice surprise to see a Bald Eagle back at one of the favorite deep winter perch locations along the Merrimack in Lawrence.  Over the past few winters, the Bald Eagles have waited until the coldest weather to perch on trees overhanging the Merrimack on the north side of the river opposite Salvatore’s Restaurant.  This morning, an adult Bald Eagle was perched just above a large pack of Canada Geese at the mouth of the Spicket River where it enters the Merrimack River.  After a while, it departed and nestled into a perch right around the corner.
