I'm hearing there are less Bald Eagles around than in recent years - but I don't know if that's just an impression. What do you think?

Tom, I am seeing the same thing. The Dump has changed in recent weeks. all the open garbage is being bulled underground. therefore there are less birds, gulls etc, less food available. also less wildliofe for them to prey on. seems as if they are ranging further in search of food. I may be wrong.

There are a lot less Eagles starting last year. I am wondering if this area has reached or exceeded the carrying capacity of this apex predator.

That is a very interesting observation. and may be right!!. the abundance of food dictates where they range. seems we have pretty well the same conclusion. good thinking, Tom.
