Mid-Winter Bald Eagle Count

For over 20 years, volunteers have participated in the Mid-Winter Bald Eagle Count. In past years, as many as 7 bald eagles have been spotted on the lake on this single day. The birds come to Lake Whitney for the winter, and the severity of the winter up north helps to determine how many of the birds will migrate here. Nesting pairs will stay on the lake year-round. Migratory birds can be seen from early fall until springtime, but January is the best time to spot them. They tend to nest, and perch, high up in dead trees, so look up to see them. In past years, they have been spotted near the Cedron Creek / Katy Bridge area, in Lake Whitney State Park, in Lofers Bend Park, and in the White Bluff area.
