Lake Mercer Bald Eagle


This photo is one of the juvenile eagles at the lake and was taken from the north side access road.

— A number of Bald Eagles have been spotted recently at Lake Mercer in Fairfax Station. The eagles have only stayed a month or so in the past but this year it seems they have taken up residence nearby. They are seen almost daily now. You can see them soar high overhead from the dam and often perch in trees on the south side of the lake. Often difficult to see from the ground there, your best views are from the north side of the lake along the shore or gravel access road using binoculars.
