Three Mile Island Camp is a family-oriented facility of the Appalachian Mountain Club. Located on Lake Winnipesaukee in Meredith, NH, Three Mile Island welcomes AMC members and the general public to summer and fall vacation opportunities. Situated on an island of 43 rocky woodland acres, this shorefront camp offers families a delightful recreational experience in the heart of New Hampshire's lake district. Exploration of the woods, swimming, boating, and conservation programs are just a sampling of the pleasures this island getaway offers. Meals are served family style in a warm, social atmosphere. Three Mile Island camp is open for nine summer weeks and four fall weekends.
NH Audubon senior biologist Chris Martin sent us another update on the progress of the Blueberry Island eagles. Here is an excerpt of his April 20 e-mail.
For those of you who may be more interested in the status of the Blueberry Island nest on Lake Winnipesaukee, observer Iain MacLeod has confirmed a new male in the pair wearing a red leg band, and that the birds are currently incubating in a nest re-built since early March in the same tree used in 2010. (Click on the photo for the full-size version.)
There is still space available during the last three Fall weekends (the three weekends in September after Labor Day). If you haven't experienced the wonder of Three Mile before, or if you haven't visited us in a while, now is your chance!

NH Audubon senior biologist Chris Martin sent us this update on the progress of our eagle chicks, along with one other local eagle chick. Our chicks are 79604 and 79606.
Here's an update through January 2011 on the status and movements of three hatch-year bald eagles from the Merrimack River watershed that were equipped with satellite transmitters back in June 2010.
Recall that one of the three juvenile eagles (79604) was killed in early November 2010 at about 6.5 months old, when she was struck by a vehicle while feeding on a road-killed raccoon carcass near Pepacton Reservoir in southeastern New York State. The first map at right shows 79604's travels prior to her death. (Click on the map for the full-size image.)
