Majestic Bald Eagle does flyover at Green Hills Bridge

Bald Eagle nesting possibility alert

From Billy Joe Fudge

Billy Joe Fudge called in a report of an impressive American Bald Eagle flying at low altitude at a little before 9:30amCT, this Wednesday morning - 5 Apr 2017 - over the Green Hills Bridge this over Russell Creek. It was flying upstream toward the Paddle Trail Launch site at the old Columbia Water Plant. It may have been fishing or, he said, it could have been, at this time of the year, looking to build a nest. Bald Eagles nest are huge, usually in the very top of a tree, and, he said, the nests look as big as a tractor tire. He's hoping that everyone will be on the lookout for this bird, take pictures, and make it a community celebrity.
