According to our friends at the Tahoe Institute for Natural Science (TINS), 42 bald eagles were spotted in their annual count. 

This is 15 more than the 2017 record of 27 eagles

Thanks to careful and descriptive data collection from over 200 volunteers, TINS was able to differentiate 30 individual adults and sub-adults and 12 immatures (featured in the photo). 

Thank you TINS and the amazing volunteers that help count the eagles year after year.
