Each winter, Bald Eagles from northern New England move south to the lower Merrimack River which provides perfect, winter habitat for these majestic birds. These spectacular birds soar high over the water and then stoop to secure prey with their sharp talons. Join Newburyport Birders for a classic breakfast while we discuss the Merrimack River’s protected islands and the field marks of the Bald Eagle. We’ll begin our search for our national symbol on foot; then we’ll carpool to several sites along the river. Dress in layers and wear warm, waterproof boots. These breakfast programs have proven to be popular; so don’t delay; reserve your place today by contacting Sue promptly…

With best wishes,
