Communal roosts near the Great Salt Lake host sometimes hundreds of individual birds. These birds are attracted to concentrations of carp killed by drained and poisoned (rotenone) wetlands. It is a good model of raptors following a locally abundant food source. See Wilson, R. and J. A. Gessaman. 2003. “Two Large Bald Eagle Communal Winter Roosts in Utah.” Journal of Raptor Research 37: 78-83.
