The Eagles of Maggurewock Marsh

The American Bald eagles of Magurrewock Marsh in Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge in Baring can be seen in their nesting area on Rt 1 nearly year round. When I stopped to take these photos on March 21 or 22 neither were on the nest.

The new material on the nest told me they pair are planning to use it again this year. See the green pine on the right? And the less faded sticks top center? They are new.
