In-town Eagle Sightings 'Special,' Says Springbrook Director
Director of Fridley's Nature Center hails nearby, once-rare birds.
At one time an unusual sight, eagles are becoming more common in the Twin Cities, including around Fridley.
A nest along Highway 10 has attracted particular attention, St. Clair said:
"We had at least 30 people stop or call about the Highway 10 nest," St. Clair said. "It is so easy to see the birds there. It's special." He said the eagle activity was aided by a warm winter that left the river open for them to fish, instead of flying south in search of open water.
St. Clair told Fridley Patch earlier in the week that the warm weather doesn't have drastic impacts on animals that rely more on the lengthening days to judge the season.
Saturday is Springbrook's Spring Fling event. Share your photos at this post.
