We almost never saw eagles in Maine when I was growing up, but they've since made a comeback, and are now fairly common. My mom, sis, and I saw a few on Morgan Bay last week. I'd never found an eagle feather during my prior beachcombing forays, but that changed this summer when I found a few. Two were probably from juvenile birds, but this one was obviously an adult feather: it was around 18" long, and the quill at its base was the width of a ballpoint pen!
