Photographer Bob Karp spends hours scouting interesting people to feature in our Locals column—but last week, he spotted Raleigh’s biggest celebrities: A pair of bald eagles nesting in Shelley Lake Park!
The City of Raleigh reports that the eagles have been active at the next since February, and will likely move on by mid-May.
To protect the nest, they have banned drone use and limited grounds maintenance in the area, but the trail remains open for passersby to get a glimpse.
Find more information about location of the eagles here.
