Bald Eagles in North Petersburgh

Location of Eagle Nest
A friend who lives in Petersburgh told me about bald eagles who have a nest just off State Route 22.  As you drive on Rt. 22 from Petersburgh to Route 7, the nest is visible from the right (east) side of the road about 1/4 mile north of the intersection of State Route 346 and Route 22 and a bit south of a bend of the Hoosic River along the north line of trees in an open field.
Someone posted this nice video of this nest and the eagle on YouTube.


  1. the eagles here are staying a month or so later in the nest, it a baby boy this yr. ,like 4 yrs ago, it's having a hard time learning how to fly, the baby females are much. larger and fly much quicker,in the last 8-9yrs there out of nest,and down to river learning how to get a meal.last week the proud parents were 80yrds. away trying to get him to fly,he would get up on the nest and open his wings and fall back in his nest,they usually only use nest f/ end Dec untill 1st week of may, Steve w. next door.
