Good Night, Irene.

Off-season manager Dinty Child reports:

Hi everyone, just to let you know the island came through the storm pretty much unscathed. Will and Sam Lemonick were on for the duration and only had a short power outage. We had some minor damage to a couple of the boats and some dock posts because of the pounding waves, but that was it and they will be fixed this week. The yoga retreat is happily ensconced and we are fully operational.

If you have been planning to visit this fall, there is no need to change your plans!

Another Eagle Update

The latest report from Chris Martin (Senior Biologist, New Hampshire Audubon) has some sad news. Here is an excerpt from his August 5 report.

Update: See below for some of the details Chris promised in his August 5 report.

BREAKING NEWS: While I was composing the message below, I received a report from Tony Tur (USFWS) that the VINS Raptor Center in Norwich, VT has received the carcass of black A/S (PTT 79606), the 1-yr old from the Blueberry Island nest whose transmitter mysteriously stopped functioning at the end of December when the bird was in northern NJ. According to available info, it was seen alive in late July in the vicinity of Lake Morey in Fairlee, VT, but was dead when turned in to VINS. More details as they become available.

Blueberry Island Eagles

On 5/16, female eagle at Blueberry Island seen brooding and then feeding at least one chick. One head seen and one excrement squirt seen over the side of the nest, but the female was offering fish morsels to at least one unseen chick as well.
