— A pair of Bald Eagles are once again working on their nest at Lake Accotink Park in Springfield for the winter nesting season. Five eagles were seen last week at the park, two adults and three juveniles. The pair should soon be ready to lay eggs and the juveniles will be chased off to protect the nest. The next couple of weeks will be great opportunities for people to come to Lake Accotink Park and watch the eagles while they are getting ready. The best observation points are at the dam. If you don’t see them at first, be patient and watch overhead as they soar in an out of view fairly frequently or perch high in the trees by the dam.
