Soar with the eagles

Bald eagles enjoy Lake Coeur d'Alene as much as we do, arriving in late November in their annual migration to feed on the dead and dying salmon which have spawned in recent weeks. A popular place at the east end of the lake is Higgins Point, a paved trail with a viewing area about 1/4 mile from the parking lot. Information kiosks and a view of the eagles from your car also makes this a fun outing for all ages. The eagles remain in the area until about the third week of January. It takes less than ten minutes to get from Coeur d'Alene to the eagles winter habitat. From I-90 and U.S. Highway 95, go east on I-90 to exit 15-Sherman Avenue, then continue on Coeur d'Alene Lake Drive to Higgins Point. Don't miss this incredible sight.
