Eagle watching returns

November 20, 2017 – Bald Eagle watching will resume at Princess Place Preserve on Sunday.

Joe and Judie Dziak – members of the Florida Audubon’s Eagle Watch program and nest monitors at Princess Place for a couple of decades – will return from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. beginning November 26 and continuing until eagle season ends.

“We are very fortunate in Flagler County to have a couple who is so dedicated to these magnificent birds,” said Parks Director Frank Barbuti. “They are very willing to answer questions our visitors have about the eagles, and they are the ones who set up scopes to provide a close look at the nest and its residents.”

Park rangers have reported that about two-thirds of the old nest is gone, but the eagles are working to rebuild the damage.  

The eagles typically call Princess Place their home until sometime in May.

“This is just one asset we have here in Flagler County,” said Commission Chair Nate McLaughlin. “I don’t think there are too many places where you can get a glimpse of nesting bald eagles or their young. This is really special.”
