Help Audubon locate eagles
Friday, January 4, 2013
The New Hampshire Audubon Society has been a leader in the monitoring and management of the state’s recovering bald eagle population for more than three decades.
Currently, there are more than 20 breeding pairs of bald eagles in New Hampshire, and the numbers are rising. On Saturday, Jan. 12, from 8 a.m.-noon, the Nashaway Chapter of the New Hampshire Audubon will participate in the annual Eagle Survey. Last year, 54 bald eagles were sighted statewide with 17 being spotted along the Merrimack River in Southern N.H. Last year was also the first time that a golden eagle was discovered on the count. Wouldn’t you like to try to spot an eagle and contribute to this important data? Contact Richard Bielawski at 429-2537 or email@example.com. Bring binoculars and a scope if you have one, and dress warmly. To read more about the Bald Eagle survey, visit http://www.nhaudubon.org/32nd-annual-mid-winter-bald-eagle-survey-results
On Wednesday, Jan. 16, at 7 p.m., the group will host Bob Quinn for a free talk about the Lake Umbagog and the Wildlife Refuge located in Northern N.H. Quinn is a native of New Hampshire who has traveled and birded throughout North America since 1972. He worked for N.H. Audubon for nine years, becoming their first staff ornithologist. He continues as an active volunteer for NH Audubon and in 2010 he was honored with the respected Goodhue-Elkins award for contributions to ornithology in the state. The program will take place in the downstairs theater room of the Nashua Public Library. Registration is not necessary, but for more information contact Richard Maloon at 424-5621 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
