Executive Director Iain MacLeod confirmed that the Bald Eagle pair on Squam Lake has successfully hatched at least one chick this year. This is exciting news, after last year’s failure. Many of you will recall that in April 2013 during a 24-hour long ice storm, the eagle pair were forced to give up incubation just a couple weeks short of hatching. This year, the eagles built a new nest in a large pine tree on the north edge of Long Island. They got a later start than usual, but were incubating eggs by April 1. Iain watched from Deephaven Point (thanks RDC for access) with his powerful spotting scope and confirmed that the female eagle was feeding at least one eaglet. It’s possible there are more chicks, but only one little white head was visible.
