Linda reports that for the past three seasons “Jersey Girl and her mate have nested at their third nest location. This nesting season they raised and fledged two young eagles. Since 2010 the pair has successfully raised and fledged a total of 17 young eagles. They have become local celebrities and many people look for them as they walk along the Perkiomen Trail.
