TWRA Looking For Eagles

State wildlife officials say new bald eagle nests are showing up across the state, including one within the city of Franklin.

Additionally, they say there are many other nests that may have been around for years that are not included in the statewide database.

To keep up, the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency is looking for nests across the state. It’s part of a comprehensive nest monitoring program to estimate population size and growth for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Officials say birds move nests, which may cause gaps in monitoring.
