To Go Virtual!

Sponsors of Bald Eagle Watching Days are planning to go virtual in January 2021.

Though eagles might concentrate in groups in winter, with the likely continuation of Covid-19, people should not. In lieu of gathering, plans are underway to develop virtual programming and events featuring the wintering bald eagles in the Sauk Prairie area.

“Bald eagles will concentrate along the Lower Wisconsin River, including the Sauk Prairie area, throughout the coming winter months,” said Jeb Barzen, president of Ferry Bluff Eagle Council. “Our planned virtual programming will feature eagles along the Wisconsin River, provide experts to answer your questions and show eagle watchers how they can safely visit the area and see the birds themselves.”

Details and links to the virtual events and programs will be made available before the Bald Eagle season begins in January.

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

Bald Eagle soaringFrom population data to roost counts, part of our mission is collecting data on eagles.


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.
