Bald Eagle siting
October 05, 2011
A bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) was sited this morning approximately 1 mile downstream of the Johnson Ferry Bridge. Dennis Teague called in with this exciting report.
Usually this magnificent raptor is seen closer to the Morgan Falls dam, but in recent years the sitings have been from East Palisades and the Devil's racecourse areas of the park.
We do keep an observation log, so if you happen to see, hear, or experience something unique or interesting, please let us know.

Did You Know?
Jones Bridge spanned the Chattahoochee River from 1904-1922, falling into disrepair in the 1930's. Half of the bridge was "stolen" in 1940, neighbors didn't know the workers cutting the bridge were not authorized to do so until it was too late.
