Midwinter survey seeks eagle spottings

Ohioans are being asked to help state wildlife biologists with their annual midwinter eagle survey.

Residents are asked to report to the Crane Creek Wildlife Research Station any bald or golden eagle activity observed between Jan. 1 and 15. The number to call is 419-898-0960.

The survey is conducted each January as part of a nationwide tally to determine the wintering eagle populations in North America.

In 2003, a record 372 bald eagles were reported across Ohio. Observers are reminded not to approach a nest.
