These closures restrict human activity within the nest area so the resident bald eagles will have theopportunity to successully breed. We are asking or your assis-tance to avoid bald eagle breeding areas while you are hunting waterowl, as your presence and the noise rom discharging your frearm may cause a disturbance to the breeding pair. Thebald eagles are laying eggs during the later part o the water-owl season and are very sensitive to human activity.The bald eagle is protected by the Bald and Golden EagleProtection Act, the Migratory Bird Treaty Act and various otherstate and ederal laws. You can fnd the ull list o Bald Eagle Breeding Area Closuresat www.swbemc.org.
