This afternoon February 3rd we observed 13 Bald Eagles (6 adults, 7 immature) just below the dam on Jordan Lake south of Raleigh in Chatham County. The birds were feeding in the tailrace waters of the Haw River along with gulls and cormorants and perching for extended observation on both sides of the river.
Thirteen Bald Eagles at one spot in North Carolina seems noteworthy. Does anyone have any thoughts on what, if anything, might be occurring with these birds here (other than they've obviously found a good source of food)? Has anyone seen a flock of Bald Eagles gathered like this elsewhere in the Carolinas?
