Alabama Baby Eagles Creating Buzz

Posted: Updated:
GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. -     Two small babies are causing quite a scene in North Alabama. Small crowds have been gathering at Lake Guntersville to catch a glimpse of two baby bald eagles. Their nest is near the Lake Guntersville Dam. The Tennessee Valley Authority owns the property. Bird watchers can only get about 100 feet from the nest. The best viewing area is from a parking lot. Many are trying to snap photos or capture the eagle family on video. The parent eagles can be seen flying around the nest and feeding their babies. Wildlife experts say the eaglets are about six weeks old. Lake Guntersville is a popular home to eagles. Park Naturalist Patti Donnellan told Al.com eagles can find an abundance of food at the lake. She also says the extreme cold weather has pushed more eagles to Alabama. 
Lake Guntersville State Park also runs an Eagle Awareness Program. It was created 29 years ago. You can see more pictures by following this link: https://www.facebook.com/EagleAwarenessWeekends
