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.

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.)

Frank Woods

We are sad to report that Frank Woods died on Tuesday, December 14. For many years, Frank served as the off-season manager of Three Mile Island. The Woods family has scheduled a memorial service and celebration of Frank's life for Saturday, January 22. There will be a memorial Mass at 10 am in the St. Dennis Church in Hanover, NH followed by a celebration/reception at the Norwich, VT Town Hall from 11:30 to 2pm. More details will follow in the next week or two.
