On the Lookout for Bald Eagles in N.H.

We examine results from New Hampshire's 39th Annual Mid-winter Eagle Population Survey and learn more about these iconic birds, whose numbers in the state have been growing.  N.H. Audubon monitors bald eagles as part of an annual contract with the NH Fish and Game Department's Nongame and Endangered Wildlife Program.  Bald eagles are now listed as “Special Concern” in the state since their official removal from NH’s Threatened and Endangered Wildlife List in March 2017. And we look at the impact of the eagle's success on another beloved symbol of New Hampshire, the loon.  



Some lucky hikers are treated to aerial eagle acrobatics:
