32nd annual Bald Eagle watching days

By  | 

SAUK CITY, Wis. Taken off the endangered species list in 2007, Bald Eagles can be seen in the Sauk Prairie area during the winter months along the Wisconsin River.

Bald Eagles need open water, combined with undeveloped shoreline with large trees for fishing, which the Wisconsin River is the perfect place this time of year.

Gene Unger, President of Ferry Bluff Eagle Council, said, "I have seen about eight or nine nests this year so I would bet you could see at least dozen eagles this year."

The Ferry Bluff Council has set up spotting scopes along the Wisconsin River for people to see the Bald Eagles. There will also be a special release of three Bald Eagles back into the wild that were found hurt, rescued and given the necessary medical attention to help them.
