Transcript Page 3 nests and rearing young in warm climes. Texas has the third largest population of southern bald eagles, estimated from 30 to 50 individuals, trailing behind Florida and California. Seven bald eagle nests were found in Texas last year, five of them active. Only one bird is known positively to have been fledged from the nests although biologists report one other possible fledgling. Northern bald eagles winter in Texas and then migrate north to nest. They are indistinguishable from southern bald eagles except they are slightly larger. Observers must rely on nesting activity of eagles to determine if they are seeing a northern or southern bird. Only the southern birds will have nests In Texas. From 250 to 350 northern bald eagles find their way to Texas each winter, according to biologists. Sightings of bald eagles and ospreys should be reported to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, John H. Reagan Building, Austin, Texas 78701. (Ed. note: the above item seems interesting in view of the many sightings of bald eagles in the past month or two in the Warren Lake area.)
