Hamilton eagle ‘scouts’ scan the trees for majesty

HEY! Hamilton! Correspondent Emily Simer Braun has been following the trails of the people she calls “Eagle Scouts,” a group of amateur naturalists who have been tracking the comings and goings of the families of bald eagles now living  around the Great Miami River.

chuckThe podcast begins with an interview lifelong Hamilton resident Chuck Wells, who said, “I believe the eagles actually chose this area.”

She also spoke to Marcia Hunker Henderson, Kim Hunker and Lisa Glasgow, a formidable trio of scouts. Both Marcia and Lisa made mention of their Native American heritage and felt more connected in their pursuit of the perfect photo–or just an eagle sighting.


For all of them, the eagle is part of their American cultural heritage, giving their new hobby a patriotic mission as well as a photographic one.

These “scouts” are all members of the Bald Eagles of Hamilton Facebook group.
