GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — Bird watchers are flocking to Lake Guntersville to get a glimpse of two baby eagles in their nest.
Al.com reports small crowds and even some school groups have been gathering to watch the parent eagles swoop in and feed their eaglets, estimated to be about six weeks old. The adults can be seen bringing their youngsters fish from the surrounding waters as well as coots, small duck-like birds.
The nest is located east of Lake Guntersville Dam on property owned by the Tennessee Valley Authority. The viewing area is about 100 feet from a gravel parking lot.
