Took me a bit to locate Deer Island, as there is also one in Boston Harbor vs 
the one at Newburyport where the Merrimack River is. I didn't realize there 
were that many eagles there.

What's the river like this time of year? From the background of the swings, 
looks like no ice.

I once dunked myself in the Merrimack river near Chelmsford, me and my OM-4t, 
when I stupidly thought I could get on the ice near the edge. Camera survived 
after drying it in a temp chamber. Me, I had to walk 1.5 miles back with wet 
jeans in freezing weather. This was near Chelmsford.
