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.

Our next update will probably be distributed in early May. Thanks for your continued interest!

This project is made possible through a grant from the Merrimack River Bald Eagle Fund administered by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. NH Audubon's Conservation Department is conducting this work under supervision of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and the N.H. Fish & Game Department.
