Update: 1/9/18 Our local folks had the opportunity to name the new female at the Clinton Bald Eagle Day on January 6. The name of the new female will be Starr. This is migration time for eagles and the trio will experience different eagles trying to get food from the nest. This is pretty common this time of the year. One hundred and thirty eagles were counted on Saturday and they are looking for an easy meal.
