Help Us Monitor the Local Bald Eagle Population

Report observations of nests in LA and MS by providing: date observed, number of eagles, status of the nest (e.g., courtship, nest building, incubating eggs, brooding sheltering or feeding young, and number of young if known), and nest location. Many nests are fledging young now. If you are monitoring a nest, it is important to determine and report the number of young fledged.
