Welcome to a New Year

Hi All,
I am so happy to report that we have have been seeing frequent visits by eagles at this nest recently. These observations are a good sign that the birds are preparing to nest. Yesterday, in fact, both eagles visited and continued to move sticks around and prepare the nest bowl. Earlier in the day we captured this photo of a single bird making some restorations to the nest.

Please send along your questions and observations to help enrich the dialogue on this blog as we get ready for what will hopefully be an exciting year at this nest.

All the Best,
Patrick Keenan

I keep missing the eagle sightings! When I check in the nest is always quiet. It's good to hear that there's been activity.

Your picture of the eagle on nest restores hope for a new family this year. Thank you for posting it. We watched the eagles work together yesterday and today we see a nest full of snow. Gayle White/Texas Jan 29,2010

I hope Mother Nature is good to the eagles this year, and good to us also! We need eaglets again!

Patrick! It's been a long time since I've visited. I was just watching a video of Lily the Black bear in Minnesota and it reminded me of the wonderful nest in Maine, which got me started on watching wildlife online a few years ago. We've had disappointment at this nest for a couple years, so it's nice to see them working on nestorations. Hopefully we'll see young ones at the nest this year. Thank you so much for all you do to keep the interested public informed.
