My name is Bill Dean. My wife and I have lived in Monson for 32 years. I am an amateur photographer. I have been studying local eagles for 9 years now. For the past several years I have worked in the field with Chris Martin (head of New Hampshire Eagle progam) on a few occasions and I keep him informed on nests in New Hampshire & Vermont. On 3-9-2017 while monitoring the Barton Cove nest I was able to observe and take photos of a Golden Eagle which is rare. Some early contact with Mass. Wildlife this year on reports I have about the Holyoke nest. I continue to assess the quality of my observations and hope to improve the interpretation of what I see. As with every year I look forward to being in the field. I haven't been doing many presentations as of late but that is because I don't have time. I can think of nothing better than sitting on the edge of a Quabbin shoreline anticipating the flight of an Eagle.
