NH Audubon says 89 bald eagles counted across Granite State, 1 shy of record

CONCORD - A senior biologist for the New Hampshire Audubon says he wasn’t quite sure what to expect for this year’s Mid-Winter Bald Eagle Survey.

According to the Concord Monitor, Chris Martin said because of the mild winter, he’s not sure they’ll see any eagles in unusual areas.

But that all changed when Martin and the 94 volunteers across the state went out on the 36th annual count day.

The group counted 89 healthy bald eagles in the Granite State, one less than the 2015 record of 90.

The numbers were tallied up in coordination with New Hampshire Fish and Game and are now sent off to the U.S. Geological Survey.
