One hundred thirty of ’em so far this year.
There have been 4 Bald Eagles hanging around or near our campus this Winter. I got to thinking, “Since the mascot of the school is a Bald Eagle, wouldn’t it be cool if we could lure a pair into nesting on-campus?”
So I proposed the idea to the Principal of planting a tall power poll with a platform on top with maybe some outrigger arms for roosting. Afterward I wondered, “Why not equip the pole with a video cam for live feeds into the Ad building, Science Room and foyer?” We could even bait the platform with fresh food from a rope and pulley arrangement.
We could perhaps get a local utility company to donate the equipment and labor of setting the pole. I’ll donate the first $100 toward the effort.
