Bob et al.,
   
  We do not have any nesting records of Eagles at Sunshine Lake, but it sounds like they are nesting in the vicinity. If anyone does happen to find a nest there definitely let me know at [log in to unmask] or 573-447-2249.
   
  From a statewide perspective, Eagles are doing very well during the nesting season. Based upon this years' survey work, we estimate that there were 123 nesting pairs of Eagles in Missouri this year, likely fledging over 150 young. This represents an increase of almost 50 nesting pairs since our last survey in 2001.

  To Andy Forbes or some other MDC person:

I visited Sunshine Lake, an oxbow in Ray County, several times this summer. 
On most visits, I saw an adult Bald Eagle perched in a tree beside the lake, 
more or less near its middle. Late in the summer, I saw two eagles perched 
in a dead Cottonwood near the west end of the lake, an adult and an 
immature.

Does anyone know if Bald Eagles nested at Sunshine Lake this year?

While I am asking, how many pairs of Bald Eagles nested in Missouri this 
year, and how many young did they fledge?
