This past weekend I participated in the nation-wide Midwinter Bald Eagle Survey. During the winter many Bald Eagles migrate south from northern areas like Alaska. The purpose of the survey is to monitor the status of Bald Eagle wintering populations. Along with the amounts of Bald Eagles seen, supplemental data on where they were located and in what habitats they were located in were also recorded. Across the country, non-overlapping designated routes are driven during the same time each winter. Overall, we saw 12 bald eagles. Unfortunately, country-wide data is not yet available.
