Bald Eagles in Maine
In other states folks get all excited when they see the first Robin in the spring. Here in Maine we watch the Eagles all winter long. This is a truly remarkable creature, the population of which has made a comeback since the days of Rachel Carson and Silent Spring. It's amazing what nature can do when we just leave it alone.
This video is from a nest up in Hancock County to our north where someone has rigged up a camera. There are several active nests in our area and three that I know of on Damariscotta Lake. I have seen Eagles land on the ice to eat low value fish such as perch and pickerel left behind by ice fishermen in search of salmon and togue.
