PINEDALE — The U.S. Bureau of Land Management is seeking volunteers to count bald eagles.
The midwinter bald eagle survey for the Pinedale area will take place Jan. 12.
Anybody interested in taking part should meet at the BLM Pinedale Field Office at 5 p.m. on Jan. 10. Survey coordinators at that meeting will coach people on how to identify eagles and will be assigning survey routes to volunteers.
The BLM says it needs two-person observation teams for the survey. The idea is that one person is able to drive safely while the other keeps an eye out for eagles.
The nationwide bald eagle survey has taken place every winter since 1979.
