    Join Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge staff and volunteers for this annual survey of eagles at Blackwater NWR! The eagle count is conducted in two parts: the non-roost count (morning count) takes place from 10 to 10:30am, while the roost count (evening count) takes place from 4 to 5:30pm. Both counts are conducted from stationary observation sites scattered across the Refuge.  This year’s eagle count is scheduled for Wednesday, January 9, with a rain date of Thursday, January 10. On the day of the survey participants will meet at the Blackwater NWR Visitor Center on Key Wallace Drive.
