Soaring population of eagles
This eagle snatches up a salmon which he then took back to a tree top perch for lunch last week. The number of migrating bald eagles on Lake Coeur d'Alene is growing. This week's US Bureau of Land Management wildlife survey counted 127 eagles in the Higgens Point/Wolf Lodge Bay area on Monday, up from 88 last week and 59 the week after Thanksgiving. A record 156 eagles were counted in December 2004. The highest counts usually occur the week before Christmas. *see posts below for more photos and directions to Higgens Point viewing area.
