The Eaglet - closed or open?

The route description for the Eaglet is from 2016 & says that the area is closed due to falcon nesting.  Does anyone know the current status?

Can't find any closure at all for New Hampshire, nor for Farley in Massachusetts.  I saw falcons at Rumney last weekend, and at Farley this one.

I reached out to the Audubon Society. Here's what they said: 

When we have established all (or nearly all) of the 2018 closures, we will distribute that list.  The sites that are closed tend to be the same from one year to the next, so until the new list is out, one could refer to the 2017 closures.  Last year’s NH list was as follows:
Eagle Cliff (south end of mountain) in Franconia, NH
Holts Ledge in Lyme, NH
Painted Walls in Albany, NH
Rumney Rocks (Summit Cliff and nearby) in Rumney, NH
Woodchuck Ledge (central section of cliff) in Albany, NH

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
