An important message from Joel Jorgensen in our Game and Parks Wildlife Division with regard to noting Bald Eagle nest information … Read on …
Bald Eagles continue to increase in Nebraska and already this year 6 new nests have been found. I am making a quick request, particularly to those of us most removed from wildlife issues, that if you happen to be out and about and see a Bald Eagle nest or what you think may be a Bald Eagle nest, please send me a quick email or give me a quick phone call. All I really need is the general location and I will try to take it from there. If you happen to see an adult on or near the nest, that information would be helpful. My contact information is below.
Bald Eagle nests in Nebraska are almost always in large Cottonwood trees. They are readily visible this time of year but disappear from view once leaves begin bursting out. I have inserted a couple pics of eagle nests below in case you are not sure what a Nebraska Bald Eagle nest looks like.
Thanks, and remember to not bother nesting Bald Eagles as they are protected by federal law. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
