The 31st annual bald eagle count in the San Bernardino and San Jacinto mountains is slated to begin next weekend and will take place over occasional weekends until mid-March, and the effort is in need of volunteers to take part, reports abc7. The U.S. Forest Service needs people to help them count the eagles, and no prior experience is needed. In fact, Forest Service spokesman John Miller says all you'll need is "some warm clothes, a pair of binoculars and an hour to spare for each count." If this is you, give Matt McDonald with the Forest Service a call at (909) 382-2933.
