    Two in the Nest! 

    PRESCOTT, AZ – April 9, 2021— The Prescott National Forest implemented an area closure in December to reduce disturbances to the nesting Bald eagles which have paid off with success! Two young eaglets can be seen in the nest getting food from one of the parents.  

    Arizona Game and Fish Department and the Prescott National Forest would like to  remind visitors to Lynx Lake to respect the nesting eagles and minimize disturbances  

    while recreating.  

    Tips for recreating near bald eagle nesting areas: 

    Desert Rose Retreat

    Enjoy from a Distance – Bald eagles should always be viewed from outside the 

    seasonal closure area. The Lynx Lake nest can be seen to the east when standing 

    at the top of the boat launch ramp at the south shore. 

    No Drone Zone – Bald eagles are highly territorial and may react to drones as 

    avian predators. Do NOT fly drones in when bald eagles are present. 

    The Bald Eagles will let you know – If you are too close, bald eagles will 

    intently focus on you and be distracted from caring for their young, hunting, or 

    feeding. 

    To learn more about the management of the southwestern bald eagles in Arizona, visit  

    Southwestern Bald Eagle Management Committee or Arizona Game & Fish.  

    If you have any questions about the bald eagles and their management in the Bradshaw  District, please feel free to email Noel Fletcher at [email protected]  For information on the Prescott National Forest, check out the Prescott NF website and following us on Facebook and Twitter.
