Bald Eagles on Sunset Lake

On October 7, Kelly Blackadar of Atkinson was visiting her father in-law on Sunset Lake in Hampstead. At about 3:00 p.m., while sitting on the dock, she couldn’t believe her eyes when she saw a pair of bald eagles, a rare sight on that lake.  Her father in-law who has lived there for over thirty years has never seen one.  She was able to get close enough to capture one of them in flight above the lake. Thank you, Kelly, for sharing this photo!
