Bald eagle nests numbered in the single digits in Georgia when Jim Ozier started searching for them more than two decades ago. This year the Georgia Department of Natural Resources documented 188 occupied nesting territories and 235 young fledged. Peregrine falcons are also making a comeback as a nesting species. Jim Ozier leads the survey effort and will give us an insider’s view of both populations and the aerial and terrestrial survey techniques used to monitor them. Jim will also update us on progress made to bring the first-ever “eagle-cam” to Chatham County this winter.
The program is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Beth Roth at email@example.com or 912-658-6136.
