Bald Eagle Watching Days: Jan. 12-13, 2018


People on foot scare eagles. Please remain in your car and use it as a blind.  Do not walk along the river, particularly at the hydropower dam, since that is the eagles’ most active feeding area. Eagles, particularly immature ones, need to conserve their energy in order to survive the cold days of Wisconsin winters.

Thank you for your consideration of our nation’s symbol, the bald eagle.
