EagleWatch Daily Eagle Count: 2019 – 2020 season

During EagleWatch season, volunteers on duty at Eagle Run dike count and record the number of eagles present. They conduct the count once every hour between 10:00 am and 3:00 pm on days when EagleWatch is present at the dike. From these counts, we select and record the peak hourly count: the highest total number of eagles for any hour in the day.

Visitors have suggested that it would be helpful to have these counts published. We will update this post every day during the current EagleWatch season, showing the most recent count first.
