Mid-Winter Bald Eagle Count

Friday, January 12, 2018 09:00am-12:00pm


The Tahoe Institute for Natural Science (TINS) will be coordinating the 37th annual mid-winter Bald Eagle count on Friday January 12, 2018 from 9am to 12pm, and you are invited to participate. There are 26 stations located around the Lake Tahoe basin, and we would like to get these completely filled as soon as possible!  When responding, please select three preferences for survey station options (if unsure, please leave a comment regarding the general area of the lake you might prefer, where you are coming from, etc.)

The count is part of the National Midwinter Bald Eagle Survey that was initiated by the National Wildlife Federation in 1979 in the U.S. The United States Army Corps of engineers is coordinating efforts in our part of the country this winter. The results of the count will be combined with those from elsewhere in the state and across the nation to generate an index (an indirect measure) of Bald Eagle populations across the U.S.
