Eagle-watchers flock to Morgan City

Dozens of eager eagle-watchers flocked to Morgan City over the weekend. They wanted to see bald eagles, and they wanted to hear how bald eagles are doing.
“Bald eagles are doing fine in Louisiana,” said Michael Seymour of the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries at a Saturday morning seminar at the Petroleum Club.
It was all part of the 2017 Eagle Expo, which every year celebrates the region’s role in the amazing comeback of America’s national bird.
