Eagles Along the Merrimack

One of my personal winter highlights is when the Bald Eagles congregate towards the mouth of the Merrimack river.  Each winter as ice and snow covers their usual fishing grounds they move towards open water.  Brackish tidal water combined with the quickly flowing waters of the Merrimack form an attractive area for the eagles to fish.

Since taking up photography I have visited here often, standing in the freezing cold, trying to capture some award winning eagle photos.  Many days I have gotten nothing more than frozen fingers and toes for my efforts.  Other days watching the eagles has been interesting and educational, but the photography is unremarkable due to the distance to the birds, the light or general lack thereof.  On those rare days like yesterday you experience the right combination of eagle activity and conditions that make those cold days a distant memory.  Hope you enjoy the photos.
