Tahoe tradition tracks bald eagle population, and inspires volunteers

The mid-winter bald eagle survey is an annual tradition in the Tahoe basin that brings volunteers out on the second Friday in January to help track the bald eagle population. Sarah Hockensmith with the Tahoe Institute for Natural Science says this year they had 250 volunteers sign up to help. More than double the 70 or 80 that they usually get. See more in the video above.
