Bald Eagle Nesting Season

by Chris Martin

Volunteer eagle-watchers from around New Hampshire are beginning to report that they are seeing eagle pairs ferrying sticks and grasses to their nests in preparation for the 2021 breeding season. Some of our nesting eagles will begin to incubate eggs before the end of February! Photographer Chris Roberts has been following the activities of one newly-established pair along the Connecticut River near Bellows Falls. They have built their nest from scratch since November 2020, and judging from the dark spots on her white head and tail, the female of this pair is a young adult of five years old or less.

If you are seeing eagles nest-building, or pairs of adult eagles together, let Chris Martin [email protected] of NH Audubon’s Conservation Department know about it.
