Bald Eagle in Haverhill along Merrimack

January 18, 2013 in Nearby Landbirds

What an unexpected treat to find this sub-adult IV Bald Eagle along the Merrimack in Haverhill.  After a nearby meeting, took a ride from Methuen along Merrimack into Haverhill and spotted this near adult perched and facing into the afternoon sun on a blue sky day.  Noticed a bit of brown wash near the tip of the tail indicating this was not yet a full blown adult but very close!
