Golden eagle rescued by crew of Cape Sable Island lobster vessel Wishful Dreams

The Cape Sable Island lobster fishing boat Wishful Dreams lived up to its name for a golden eagle rescued by the crew on May 2 after being found near death floating on the fishing grounds about a mile and a half northwest of Seal Island. “We were hauling gear and steaming to another string and I happened to see him in the water,” recalled crewmember Steven Nickerson. “I didn’t really know what it was. I knew it was a different kind of bird. I thought it was dead but then I happened to see his head bobbing up and down so I got Kevin (Swim, the boat captain) to turn around and go back. We got alongside it and it was still alive so we got him aboard.”>click to read<14:14
