Heads up! An Adult Bald Eagle Just Flew By!

2 for the eagle survey count here on Manchaug Pond! This time an adult, last time a juvenile. As I sat at the kitchen table minutes ado, I saw the big bird gliding directly toward me – huge wingspan was the give away it was a big bird. With the camera in front of me, I thought I could catch a picture as it flew by the window… white head and tail clearly visible … but that delay from the time you press the button until the shutter moves left us with this

I can’t see it among the branches. :(( It was close so it should be easy to spot. Next time, perhaps.

I’ll email MassWildlife education biologist Marion Larson with this sighting!

By any chance did anyone capture that sunrise this morning – pink and blue stripes?

  1. Let’s see, 18″ pipe flowing water all year long to produce hydropower to cover cost of dam upkeep(how about the cost of installing this baby and payback of said installation). Say good bye to historic high water levels, as this will equate to much more than the riffle that goes thru the dam most of the summer. Good luck to all!
