Distribution and Productivity of Ospreys and Bald Eagles in the Umbagog Lake Ecosystem in 2005

Metadata Updated: December 11, 2019

In New Hampshire, breeding season monitoring and management of ospreys and bald eagles, and winter monitoring and management of bald eagles, have been coordinated since 1980 by New Hampshire Audubon (NHA) under contract with the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department (NHFGD). Population status and management strategies for both ospreys and bald eagles in New Hampshire are discussed in individual “species profiles” (Martin 2005a, 2005b) included in the state’s provisional Wildlife Action Plan submitted to the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) in October 2005. Data compiled during annual population monitoring conducted by NHA since the early 1980s has indicated a decline in the total number of osprey breeding pairs present in the Umbagog Lake area between 1996 and 2002. Recently, questions have been raised about the overall local population status and ecological health of ospreys and other piscivorous birds, including common loons (Gavia immer), whose numbers have also declined locally in recent year (Vogel and Taylor 2002). This field study of ospreys and bald eagles is one part of a broader ecological investigation currently being conducted to better understand the overall status of wildlife populations in the Umbagog Lake ecosystem.
