More bald eagles nesting at Reed Bingham

Adel - Reed Bingham is the only Georgia State Park with an active bald eagle's nest.

Now, it's home to two more.

Rangers at Reed Bingham say at least five bald eagles live in the park.

A family of four has a nest near the lake. Rangers recently spotted two more eagles. As the weather gets colder, they say the eagles should build a nest and be here to stay.

"Bald eagles typically start nesting in December and lay their eggs either in late December or early January. So if the eagles are here, they are probably already resting," says Park Manager Chet Powell.

The area around the first nest has already been closed to the public to assure the eagle family doesn't leave.

Rangers are trying to follow the new pair of eagles to find where they are building their nest.
