Harrison Bay Eagle Nest Visits Begin

The Harrison Bay Eagle Cam Project has been a tremendous success this year.  Despite a few technical issues with equipment we have been able to enjoy watching the eaglets, affectionately HB3 and HB4, over the internet.  Although watching them on the computer is great, we began hosting eagle nest visits this morning.  We had a good turn out for the first tour this morning with 10-12 people coming out to get a closer look at the nest.

Elliott and Eloise both put on a good show for the people who came out for the tour.  They flew around the nest area picking up sticks and fresh nesting material all to the enjoyment of the visitors.  The tours are provided by Harrison Bay State Park rangers each Tuesday from 7-9 AM.  We are lucky to have two very knowledgeable rangers which provide the tours.  Interested persons should contact the Harrison Bay State Park office to register for a visit.
