With the increase in Bald Eagle activity in Vermont, confrontations and flyovers are becoming a more common sight. There were at least two chicks taken by eagles this year in Vermont on Greenwood Lake and Island Pond. However, loons can defend themselves (see photo from Jon Winslow in NH) and chick survival is surprisingly high on eagle-active lakes.
