Bald Eagle pair perched overlooking Merrimack!

December 12, 2014 in Bald Eagle

What a treat to find a pair of adult bald eagles perched close together overlooking the Merrimack River just east of Rt.495 in Lawrence.  They were perched on an overhang about 70 feet above water level.  This is a very regular perch location, but recently only with single adult eagle sightings.  The skies were heavy overcast with light rain, fog, and mist.  Visibility was under 4 miles and winds were light out of the north at about 6-8 miles per hour.  The vantage point was from the ball field located off of Incinerator Road next to the Essex County correctional facility.
