Eagle Mania

EAGLE MANIA. The weather was pretty nice Sunday afternoon and word has definitely gotten out about the Sunset Drive eagle's nest. Dozens of people were in the park with cameras, binoculars and spotting scopes to see the eagles and their nest. If the pair had hoped to set up housekeeping in a quiet neighborhood, they definitely picked the wrong location. 

This weekend is the last of Lake Guntersville State Park's 4 Eagle Awareness Weekends. So if you've been wanting to take in a field trip or one of the special programs, better make plans this weekend.
