Bald Eagle on Squam Lake

On May 2nd, Iain MacLeod, Executive Director of the Squam Lakes Natural Science Center, scoped the Little Loon eagle nest from Rockywold and confirmed a hatch. He reported that he could see an adult tearing up prey and offering morsels to unseen chick (or chicks). He guessed that they would have hatched within the last week or so.

While watching the eagles, he also spotted a pair of Merlins courting at the end of Deephaven point, about a quarter of a mile from where they nested in 2009 and 2010 and closer to where they nested in 2008.


View from Rattlesnake

I hiked Rattlesnake yesterday and took some photos of the “ice status” in our area.

Some open water around Five Finger Point! Nice break headed towards Deephaven.

A little opening up at the end of the bight.

Another view of the break from Five Finger Point to Deephaven’s eastern shore. Still plenty of ice out there!
