Since 1979 volunteers have been keeping tabs on bald eagles as part of Vermont Audubon’s annual winter bald eagle survey. To learn more about the important role of citizen science in the state we went out with a group of volunteers during the 2014 bald eagle survey.
Visit an active eagle nesting site, one of the first in Vermont since 2008 when the birds were reintroduced. Although the bald eagle population has soared to nearly 10,000 nesting pairs nationwide, Vermont had no resident population until these efforts.
Vermont PBS educates, informs, entertains and inspires Vermonters to be lifelong learners and engaged in their community.
