GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. – Bald eagles nesting near Guntersville Dam have welcomed a new eaglet into the world.
Our news partners at AL.com said observers, some of whom visit daily, reported the eagle family built a new nest for their eaglet.
The nest is located on TVA property at the Guntersville dam on the east side, about a 15 minute drive north on Hwy 431.
Joe Songer with AL.com said, “The adult eagles are very protective of their new arrival. A juvenile bald eagle flew too close to the nest the afternoon I was there. The two chased the intruder from the area. One of the adults will stand watch over the nest while the other hunts for food.”
