Eagle Habitat

bald eagle habitat

People travel far and wide to see our beautiful bald eagle habitat. Just offshore, and in plain sight of our swimming area, is a small island with a red pine tree. High up in the tree, you’ll spy a large nest – originally built by osprey – that is now home to a pair of bald eagles!

The eagle family can easily be seen from our shores with the naked eye and fantastic views are available with a modest pair of binoculars. A good zoom or telephoto is needed to get memorable photos.

Every year, since 2004, the eagles have returned in February and nested. Each year, one or two eaglets have hatched.

We continue to be thrilled by these beautiful birds soaring about our skies and fishing our waters. Our campers delight us with daily reports of the eaglets’ progress throughout the summer. By summer’s end we watch them fly off to points unknown.
