Somewhat deceptively I put the current eagle shot in with images from a similar 
outing in 2014. The image of the river you spotted was from then.   We have had 
two cold snaps with high single digits, but a warm winter thus far 
overall and not much ice near the mouth of the Merrimack this year.  The Deer 
Island of interest is accessible from  a small turnoff on the Chain Bridge 
between Newburyport and Amesbury. 
Moose has been there.   The Bald Eagles did not start re-nesting there until 
about 1989 and were not all that easy to  find until the last several years.  
They have done well--may it continue.
Some years one can venture forth on secure ice a small distance.  I suspect the 
E-M1 Mk11 would fare better than I would with a dunking.  You must have had a 
very very  cold walk back.  
A few years back it was <10 deg F and howling for the eagle day and I froze 
while dry. 

Waiting for Spring, Mike
