Based on current political boundaries, this year's bald eagle nest on the
Vernon Dam territory is located in NH, by about 100 yards! The territory
obviously includes parts of both NH and VT (and I'd guess a bit of MA as
well!), but the nest tree is in NH.
More info about the Vernon Dam eagles is available at the following link on
the NH Audubon web site ... http://www.nhaudubon.org/research/03eagles.htm
and several related web pages on the NH Audubon web site.
