Or if you want to go to Pownal, the area along the Hoosick River on 346 usually has 1 or more.

  Try the Eagleville Bridge. We always see them there. Park at the corner and 
  look down the river. Or try driving along the river and look in the trees. 
  We saw several in the area while doing the Salem, NY CBC.
  Good luck,

  Subject: [VTBIRD] Eagle seeking in Arlington/Shushan

  I spent many hours driving around today looking for bald eagles based on 
  many sighting reports from my local friends.   I have friends in Shushan who 
  see them all the time, but they always seem to elude me when I am passing 
  through...  I've also heard there is one cruising up and down 313 in 
  Arlington quite regularly, so I decided to go on a little tour today.

  While looking in a field I've spotted other raptors in before, a woman 
  pulled over and asked if I was seeing anything good, and told me that on her 
  road (Camden Valley Rd. in Shushan, right on the VT border)  there were 6 
  bald eagles (2 adult and 4 juvenile) feeding on a carcass yesterday at the 
  back of a field.   I headed over there, hoping to hit the jackpot, but not 
  surprisingly, only a skeleton remained!   Then headed back to stakeout a 
  dead deer I'd seen on the side of the road earlier (Juniper Swamp Rd.)  to 
  find 2 red tails, and later a Coopers feeding.  But alas, no eagles...

  I know they are seen quite regularly - just not by me apparently!  If anyone 
  local has any feeding frenzies or sites to report where they reliably hang 
  out, could you please post here?

  Getting frustrated in Manchester....
