Great Birding at Harlan this winter!Bald and Golden Eagles are thick in the trees at Harlan County Lake this December, and there are many thousands of migrating Snow Geese on and near the water. The eagle numbers tend to grow into January and many stay on into February, when the large flocks of American White Pelicans start arriving. The Harlan White Pelican Watch (March 1 - April 15) and White Pelican Homecoming activities will be announced soon. The Harlan Christmas Bird Count was held on December 16, 2014, thanks to Joel Jorgensen, and the preliminary species count was around 75, even with a very small group of spotters.
