Bald Eagle Above the Shores of Lake Sunapee

I was headed south in the Boston Whaler on Lake Sunapee the other day, on my way to Newbury with a mile to go. I was headed for the ol’ Dick Durrance Trail, which takes off steeply on the eastern shoulder of Mt. Sunapee. It’s a good short steep hike. It’s a great little rountine, to go by boat (it’s incredibly efficient on gas), walk across Route 103 to the trailhead, and start up. On my way there, just south of the State Beach, I spied a bald eagle who was circling about 80 feet off the water. He must have been fishing. I slowed, turned off the motor and watched him circle a few hundred feet from the boat. He just kept circling for about 15 minutes. This image is similar to the scene I saw, but was taken on Squam Lake. Image: Courtesy of Outdoor Escapes New Hampshire.
