CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) – Southern West Virginia is seeing an abundance of eagles.


The Charleston Gazette reports that birders and naturalists have confirmed the presence of five new bald eagle nests in Summers and Greenbrier counties. The nests include three newly hatched eaglets.


Some of the nests were spotted during an annual spring nesting survey conducted by volunteer birders and boaters.


About 30 nesting pairs of bald eagles are known to exist throughout West Virginia. They can be found primarily in the Potomac River headwaters region, the eastern mountains and along the Ohio River.


The newborn southern West Virginia eagles are getting out of their nests and learning to fly.
