Bald eagles are thriving in Alabama.
A recent count conducted by biologists at the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (ADCNR), Alabama Power and other partner organizations found 10 new bald eagle nests throughout Alabama’s 15 major waterways since the survey was previously conducted in 2021. Of those 10 new nests, seven were found by Alabama Power biologists along Alabama Power’s reservoirs.
“It’s very exciting,” said Dylan Shaw, biologist at Alabama Power. “Bald eagles in Alabama are doing fantastic, which is consistent with the species’ success nationwide. Since 2009, their numbers as a species have quadrupled. That means we’re doing things the right way and our management activities along our reservoirs are protecting the birds’ habitat, allowing them to thrive. We closely monitor the location of all known bald eagle nests on our reservoirs to prevent disturbance during day-to-day activities.”
