“2007 Nebraska Midwinter Bald Eagle Survey” from Nebraska Bird Review (June 2008) 76(2).
Bald and Golden Eagles are species of conservation concern that regularly winter in Nebraska (Sharpe et al. 2001). The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission (NCJPC) has conducted an annual statewide Midwinter Eagle Survey (MWS) since 1980. The Nebraska MWS is done in conjunction with a national survey coordinated by the U.S. Geological Survey. The purpose of the MWS is to determine the number and distribution of eagles wintering in Nebraska. Here we present results from the 2007 Nebraska MWS.
