Bald Eagle, subadult, Basic I, (leg band P/7)

December 27, 2013 in Bald Eagle

Great news from Mass Wildlife about this subadult observed and photographed on the Merrimack River in Lawrence.  This subadult eagle has burnt orange leg bands – After Chris Martin from NH Audubon insisted on P/7 as positive leg band ID, communicated this info to Mass Wildlife staff and received confirmation on banding, with details that this eagle had been banded June 12, 2012 in Amesbury with no other previous band reports!  Also heard from local area volunteer, Sally Chandler, who had discovered the nest and was present for banding of this bird — she is thrilled with this confirmed sighting — great teamwork among all parties!
