Bald Eagle Population Increases

Where are the bald eagles?

A new survey shows Indiana has half as many eagles as this time last year.

Experts say unseasonably warm weather is keeping the birds from migrating south.

Earlier this month, wildlife officials counted 103 bald eagles in Indiana.

Over the past 30-years, the bald eagle population has grown dramatically across the country.

The U.S Fish and Wildlife Service plans to remove the bald eagle from the threatened species list next month.
