Mid-Winter Bald Eagle Survey

New York State will once again be participating in the national mid-winter bald eagle count; 2012-13 will be our 34th consecutive winter of these surveys! The national survey is now being coordinated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers out of their San Francisco office, in partnership and with assistance from the previous coordinators at the Biological Resources Division of the U.S. Geological Survey. The survey itself and the methodologies remain the same.
