The objectives of the annual eagle survey on Yadkin Project reservoirs are: 1) To document the status, distribution and productivity of nesting pairs in association with the Yadkin reservoirs and associated river corridors. 2) To increase our understanding of Bald Eagle natural history in interior regions of North Carolina. 3) To determine the status and distribution of breeding Great Blue Herons (and associated Great Egrets and Double-crested Cormorants) within the Yadkin Project reservoirs.
