Bald Eagles: Essex County #2, pair bonding

March 7, 2016 in Bald Eagle

CF2C2477-002As the warmer weather rolls in, very nice to see this pair of Bald Eagles continue to the pair bonding process.  Very normal for pair of eagles to perch together at or near the nest as the time approaches for eggs to be laid and incubation to get underway!

CF2C1025-001The bald eagle nest along the Merrimack in Essex County remains an active location for a pair of adult bald eagles.  They are seen with greater frequency in and around the nest.  According to state wildlife officials, this is a new next location for 2016 and not previously known in prior years.  We will now look for clear signs that the female has laid eggs and has commenced the incubation process!

Thought it might be nice to check on the new Bald Eagle nest along the Merrimack River in Essex County.  What a terrific surprise to find two adult Bald Eagles perched proximate to the nest.  they were both just basking in the sun and enjoying the morning together!
