CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – 22News is more commonly associated with the NBC peacock, but another bird was making its presence known near our Broadcast Center in Chicopee Tuesday afternoon. Chief photographer Don Sutherland captured video of a bald eagle soaring over our property.
Bald eagle sightings have become increasingly common in recent years, as the eagle population has rebounded from the brink of extinction. In western Massachusetts, they are most often seen near known nests along the Connecticut River and near the Quabbin Reservoir.
