Bald Eagles nesting in area

Susan Jacques

A young family visiting from England was lucky enough to spot a bald eagle high up in a tree on the shores of Brome Lake. The family was canoeing and swimming in the lake, when a local resident pointed out the bird to them.

Bald eagles have gradually become more common in the area since the banning of DDT. Their babies in the nest can once again clearly be heard this summer.

It takes about ten to twelve weeks before the babies fly for the first time.
