Jason, This is very interesting! I live in Gales Ferry, but spend lots of time in Groton, and I have noticed that I am seeing Bald Eagles unusually often this year. I saw three in Gales Ferry just today. I drive along the river between the EB Shipyard and the Subase often for work, and I see them almost every week, sometimes several times a week. I'm not entirely sure what is normal as I've only been a birder for a couple of years now, but I grew up in this area and I can't remember seeing as many as I have this year, and in so many places.
