There are definitely eagles in Lake Cumberland area

(Continued)

Somerset —

Creation of large reservoirs statewide has provided habitat that historically was not available to eagles. Large rivers, creeks and wetlands provide additional nesting opportunities, KDFWR noted.
Kentucky’s population of bald eagles met criteria set by the Southeast Bald Eagle Recovery Team for removal of the species from the federal list of threatened and endangered species. However, bald eagles still are protected by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act and the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act, according to KDFWR.
