Is Hydrilla Responsible for Killing Bald Eagles
According to an annual statewide census, Georgia’s bald eagle population has grown again. However, a neurological disorder that has killed scores of the birds at Thurmond Lake continues to be a problem.

A condition known as avian vacuolar myelinopathy has killed dozens of eagles at the reservoir since the disorder was first identified in the mid -1990’s, not long after the invasive aquatic weed hydrilla was discovered.

AVM is believed to be caused by unusual algae that grown on the dense mats of hydrilla that are popular feeding sties for migrating waterfowl and small aquatic birds called coots. Coots feed heavily on hydrilla and are often eaten by bald eagles; the small birds play a major role in the AVM outbreaks.
