BISMARCK — The North Dakota Game and Fish Department is seeking help in locating active bald eagle nests, as well as any sightings of black bears in the state.
Conservation biologist Sandra Johnson said the department is looking for locations of nests with eagles present, not individual eagle sightings. Roughly 300 active bald eagle nests can be found in more than three-quarters of the counties in the state, mostly near streams and mid- to large-sized lakes.
Game and Fish furbearer biologist Stephanie Tucker said Game and Fish confirms 12-15 black bears in the state each year, with most documented in the north or east portions of the state.
Anyone who observes a black bear is asked to report it online at the Game and Fish website.
