Bald Eagle Watching DaysBald Eagle Watching Days!

January 15th & 16th 2022

Wisconsin’s longest-running eagle-watching event is back for 2022!  Come to the newly renovated overlook on Water Street in Prairie du Sac to see eagles over the Wisconsin River, or attend one of our presentations at the River Arts Center!  If you can’t attend in person we will also be livestreaming our presentations on Ferry Bluff Eagle Council’s You Tube channel.


Bald Eagle Watching Days are co-sponsored by Ferry Bluff Eagle Council, the Sauk Prairie Area Chamber of Commerce, the Wisconsin Dept. of Natural Resources, and Tripp Museum in Prairie du Sac.

Eagle Research

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.
