Eagle survey date set
The annual mid-winter survey of the bald eagles at Sardis Lake will begin at 6 a.m. on Jan. 11.

At this time participants should gather at the Sardis Lake Field Office conference room for breakfast and position assignments.

Two boats will be provided for those who prefer to view from the water and volunteers are encouraged to bring boats as well. Others will form teams and drive to locations frequented by the eagles.

Numbers tallied each year vary according to the severity of the northern cold fronts and the presence of their favorite prey – waterfowl and fish.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers invites all ages to take part in the vital survey.

For more information, contact the field office at 662-563-4531, Rangers Bobby Cox or Andy Strickland.
